"Amateurs as well as professional scientists delight in and pore over Rocks & Minerals, which has published articles on mineralogy, geology, and paleontology since 1926. Regular departments explore such topics as minerals for the collector, microminerals, and current geologic events. Detailed lists of collecting opportunities in specific localities appear periodically, as do special theme issues. Spectacular color photographs appear throughout each issue. Rocks & Minerals works with the Mineralogical Society of America to promote cooperation between collectors and professional mineralogists" (Quote from this publication's web site).

Evaporite mineral collection of the series of Sicily, the geological formation of the upper Miocene, located in the so-called Caltanissetta basin, which includes geological provinces of Caltanissetta, Enna, Agrigento and Palermo.
The collection contains crystals of halite, polyoxyethylated, Kain, carnallite, sylvite, Astrakhan (bloedite) aftitalite (Glaser), Leon and Bischof varying combinations of them.
The idea for this website was created with the intention to develop the knowledge of mineral salt and potash from mines in Sicily.

"Paleontologists explore the world of ancient history. As plants, animals, and people die, their bodies and structures are left behind. They study fossilized remains and remnants; give them a couple of bones, and they can tell the story of what life was like thousands of years ago. From the toes to the tip of the head, every bone can help us understand more about the life, culture, and people of the past. Originally, bones were used to determine how old a person was, their race, and whether the remains were of a male or a female. Now, with huge advances in technology, including carbon dating, paleontologists can learn a lot more about people from their teeth than just their age and gender. The teeth can reveal anything from a person's diet, societal diseases, health, demography, and even their relationships" (Open the link above for more information).
