The Gold Room Field Trip

On Monday we were fortunate to be able to go on a field trip to the Gold Room where we met a gemologist.  He took the time to look at all of our precious gem collections and help us figure out what each of them were.  Then we got to go behind the counter and look at some of our gems under the microscope. We also looked at salt and sugar crystals under the microscope.  Did you know that even though salt and sugar look similar with our eyes, when you look under a microscope they look very different.  One is a perfect cube, and one isn't even close to being a cube. Can you guess which one is cubed shaped?

Here are some photos from our adventure.
