Rocks and Minerals for Swap Meet

Postby Kyanite » May 3rd, 2018, 5:02 pm

I have seen quite a few people talking about bringing some rocks and minerals for the swap meet (including myself) from their state and I figured I should condense it into a more organized manner. I personally am going to try and bring some calcite, obsidian, granite and schist from Washington State to swap (and maybe a few fossils if anyone is interested)

I'm not sure how much/if I can bring any seeing as we are flying, but I'll try. Most of the stuff you listed I'd be willing to trade for although I don't have a thunderegg
