Hidden gems

    Ever look at a sculpture in amazement and wonder how those carvings happen?  Now take that amazement and apply the carvings to crystals, gems and other precious stones.  The University of Delaware’s Mineralogical Museum displays mice, frogs and other animals all carved from these classic stones.  We’ll call this a hidden gem of a First Experience.
