-Mineral: Gypsum - Gypsum is a chemical sedimentary mineral, or an evaporite.
-Rock: Vesicular Basalt - Basalts are a fine grained extrusive igneous rock that are formed from the partial melt of the mangle peridotite.
-Rock: Arenite - Arenites are a sedimentary rock deposited from both wind and water.

Detailed descriptions of each sample are included, plus chemical composition, color, luster, hardness, and cleavage.
