LPC Geology Department's fluorescent rock and mineral collection under ultraviolet light during lab time. Photo taken by a geology student.
On campus, the LPC Geology department has an expanding physical collection of rocks, minerals, fossils, and more! In lecture and lab courses, students will get a chance to physically handle and see some of our extraordinary specimens collected over the years. In Room 1824, students can walk around and glimpse some of our more rare samples displayed in the display cabinets.
Over the years our collection is constantly changing and evolving.
Here students will see:

Students can view the display cases while visiting room 1824 during lab times and office hours. Our lab technician and student assistants have spent numerous hours building our beautiful displays for public to enjoy.
