Re: Rocks & Minerals B/C

Re: Rocks & Minerals B/C

Thank you so much for answering! I just got totally unrelated searches or material that I didn't understand. Thanks again. No problem. I'm just surprised it came up, that seems like it's way beyond the scope of the event. I mean, I love mineralogy and I like educating people about it, but having mi...

Re: Rocks & Minerals B/C

Does anyone want to set up a test exchange with me for rocks and minerals?

Clarification: I am only exchanging home-made tests(not illegal ones from invites) and all of my tests that get swapped will be uploaded to the wiki at the end of the season.
