What is the attraction of minerals? For some it is the wonderful symmetry of naturally occurring crystals, their colour and beauty, for some it is contemplating how minerals form, such as the extreme conditions of huge values of temperature and pressure existing where diamonds are born, deep in the mantle of the earth.
Fossil collectors are intrigued by the strange creatures that existed in geological time, leaving their imprints in the rocks for us to marvel at. The stories that these fossils tell of how our earth developed and how different it was aeons ago make strange reading indeed.
Start with picking up a few attractive looking stones, and you will soon be drawn into the fascinating world of the collector.
