Event

Adult class -- Rocks and Minerals
Do you know the difference between a rock and a mineral?  Did you know that 42 different minerals are used to construct a television set?  Do you know what New Mexico rock was used in remodeling the Albuquerque Museum?  Have you heard of orbicular granite?  Why do the volcanic rocks in the Jemez and El Malpais look so different?  Why are plutonic rocks named after Pluto?  In New Mexico we are surrounded by beautiful minerals and rocks that tell a story.  Come to this two-session class and learn about the rock types and range of rocks and minerals in our amazing state.  Materials and exhibit tours included.  No prior knowledge of geology is required.

This is a two-session adults-only class, April 5 and April 12 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Jayne Aubele is a geologist and Adult Programs Educator at the Museum.  She has mapped and researched the geology of New Mexico and the Southwest for more than 30 years.  She has authored or co-authored many technical articles and popular books/chapters about New Mexico geology, including the Field Guide to the Sandia Mountains; and she was geologic technical advisor and on-camera geologist for the 2008 KNME-TV program, The Sandias.
