The Library of Earth Anatomy is now open…

October 5, 2017 § Leave a comment

I am delighted to announce that the Library of Earth Anatomy is open, up and running and can be visited in the Bay Observatory at The Exploratorium now and into the geologic future…

The Library – part sculpture, part mobile geological field station, features a new contemplation based Geology collection and an accompanying card catalog, a rock handling collection, a selection of inspirational geological printed matter and a petrographic microscope for exploring the geological universe in thin section.

Rocks are records of events that took place at the time they formed. They are books. They have a different vocabulary, a different alphabet, but you learn how to read them.
