The Geology Club of Meramec held a rock, mineral and gem sale  in the campus cafeteria on April 5 – 6.

The club sells the rocks once each semester,  according to Ian Stoner, the president of the club.

The funds made from the sale go towards the club’s activities. Some of these activities include going to Chicago to see the Field Museum or taking trips to Tuscon, AZ.

The club treks to Tuscon for a weekend to purchase the rocks and minerals in bulk to bring them back to campus to sell. The rock sale in Tuscon is the largest rock sale in the world and lasts for three weeks, Stoner said.

Geology Club sponsor Carl Cambell started the sale over six years ago, according to club member Bradley Hackworth.

The sale features rocks and minerals from all around the world that are also fairly resonable in price. The many types of rocks and minerals will be available once again in the Fall of next semester.
