Mineral Collection Poster Laminated
This poster shows 162 photographed specimens of the most commonly encountered minerals. The minerals are grouped by class: native elements, carbonate, sulfates, sulfides, halides, oxides, phosphates, organic and silicates. This poster doesn't have the text content like "Intro to Rocks," but the pictures are magnificent. This is a poster for someone who may collect rocks and minerals to help with identification.
This new poster series is subtitled “content-intensive info poster.” Each 24” x 36” poster provides an overview presented through beautifully photographed images and text. The publisher believes these will appeal to the same folks who like such magazines as Smithsonian, National Geographic, and Scientific American. When I first unrolled the posters, I reacted with a big, “WOW! I need these posters for my daughter.” If you have a rock collector and a nice big wall, these would not only be useful but fun. Use them for matching, identifying and basic information.
