Storing Rocks


Geologists pro and amateur collect rocks, most of them for a reason. No matter how scrupulously and judiciously you collect, rocks have a way of accumulating unless you come up with ways to file them. At some point you will need to store your rocks. Museums use fancy schemes involving notebooks and databases, but the rest of us can keep things simple.
