NAGT/MSA Rock and Mineral Exchange

published Dec 15, 2011 9:57am

Many geoscience educators have limited opportunities to collect good rock and mineral samples directly from the field. Others lack the financial resources to purchase collections. At the same time, many institutions have an abundance of specimens sitting unused in laboratory drawers. This new service from NAGT and MSA aims to bring these educators together so that surplus resources can be moved between institutions as a way of improving educational opportunities for some and freeing up space for others.

On the exchange, you can browse through postings related to specimens that other users are making available as well as those related to specimens being sought.
