We’re about to conclude our tour of OSU geology, and of course, the worst is yet to come. Well, it’s the best, too, but the worst because you’re going to want to hold and squeeze and pet and love these mineral samples, and take them home and call them George, and you can’t because they’re behind glass and people will become very upset with you if you break them out.
But if you become a geology major, you could go live with them most days for up to four years, and that wouldn’t be so bad.

So, geologists have a habit of bringing back great big chunks of geology for display purposes. And ye gods, what displays!
There, there, now, I know. They’re so beautiful it hurts. But it’s a good hurt. It’s nice to end a tour with a bang and a whimper, eh?
And now you can go have a nice cup of coffee or tea or hot chocolate (oh, my darlings, the hot chocolate at Interzone – it will ease the pain of not being able to haul home mineral samples larger than your head), and rest your feet, and reflect on all you have seen here. Certainly gives you ideas for your own private geologic mansion, doesn’t it?
