Gold may have brought the first settlers to Idaho, but our state is also rich in silver, gemstones and lots of industrial minerals. In this project, you’ll

  • collect rocks, fossils and minerals and test their properties
  • learn about the important roles of minerals in everyday products
  • make your own jewelry
  • look back into geologic time (that’s billions of years!) when rocks and minerals formed
  • explore geology careers

Some counties may have additional requirements. Contact your 4-H leader or UI Extension county office to learn more.
