Rock Storage Idea
to store your expensive rocks and minerals, but spent
of your money on the rocks themselves?
Then head to the nearest craft or fishing store and
pick this box up. If you are wondering what kind of
box it is, I'll share this money saving secret with
you. A plain embroidery thread box, yep, that's right
you can also use beads,and or bait and tackle boxes.
But the best part is they rarely go above two or three
dollars, there are some nicer ones and like most of
these sorta things they, of course, cost more. The cheaper
ones work just as well, so it's up to you which ones
I will give you some collector-to-collector advice.
If you have trouble rembering what is in what box, or
if you happen to forget what a certain specimen is (
Most quartzes look alike, and we're only human) why
not put a small piece of paper with a name or any other
information you desire in with the rock. Another good
idea is to have a number in with your rock and then
have a notebook or something of the sorts with all the
info on that rock. This is the method I use because
if looking for a certain specimen it can get frustrating
opening all the boxes till you come to the one you want.
But with a book you just look it up and go "ah,
the emerald point from brazil is number twelve in box
two." Thus ridding yourself of having to look through
twenty or so boxes that you may have or might have in
me, Jessy, if you have any other clever or unique storage
ideas for your rock and mineral collections!
