Like many, I had a rock collection as a kid. It was always exciting to go rock hunting and find a new specimen or two to put with the others. Although I am no longer an active collector, I still love to dig through the boxes or rocks I have accumulated over the years.
When I started the site, I had planned to include several posts about rocks and minerals, but up until now I just haven’t gotten around to it. So I guess this is as good as any time to include a little something about rocks.
For my first rock blog, I think I will focus on a specific segment of my collection. This group consists of a wide variety of different types of rocks. You may even find shells, beach smoothed glass and the occasional shark tooth among these rocks. So what defines this bunch of rocks as a group? They all have one thing in common. They are small. Too tiny to be displayed in a regular fashion. But put them together in a group, and enlarge them slightly, and they can be every bit as impressive as their larger counterparts.
