Gem Mining Adventure!

Third grade students have been studying rocks and minerals.  They enjoyed an exciting day of exploration with  Diamond Del’s mobile gem mine!  Students were given a mining box of Brazilian mining ore.  The students then sluiced the ore in the water flumes and discovered a variety of gems. What a memorable way to learn more about mineral identification and classification!
