Geo Advent Calendar Day 25

O Christmas tree
O Christmas tree
How lovely are thy minerals!

Sadly we’ve reached the end of the Geo Advent Calendar… but that means it’s Christmas! The best way to celebrate Christmas is with a mineral tree. The baubles have pictures of thin sections on them and were made by Ruth Siddall. You can download them here.

Merry Christmas everyone!
