My son is taking a class in earth science and geology this year. We are trying to obtain specimens of different samples to put together for his class. Our objective is to collect as many different types of minerals and fossils from as many different locations as possible. Our belief is that this will give us the best chance of collecting enough specimens to make this project a success. We have a very limited budget. We have already collected quite a few of the common minerals and some fossils and are now specifically looking for some associated with Louisiana. I have no idea what these might be worth from your area. I realize that you are not in the mineral business but as a Bed and Breakfast you are probably very familiar with the geology of your area. My question, if possible, is if it is possible to get a small sampling of minerals/fossils that might be of little or no value, for this educational project.-George, Corcoran, CA

Well you are correct in that we do not specialize in minerals and fossils here at the B&B, but there is a shop only a few blocks from here that does. The link for the store is pasted below and I feel that if you give them a call or e-mail they may be able to help you with your project or direct you to an agency that can.


Hope you can come and visit us sometime and collect some samples of our earth and culture at the same time.

Good luck with the project!
