Minerals In Your Life

Some of the historic and present industries within the Stonehammer Geopark boundaries that rely on rocks are: mining for graphite and potash; quarrying granite for building and lime for cement.

Find out if you have been using any of these products in your daily life? Visit Rocks and Minerals: Everyday Uses (The Museum of Natural and Cultural History) and Minerals In Our Environment (WGBH Educational Foundation) for ideas.
