If your kid tries to pocket every slightly sparkly rock they
see, it might be time for this class at the awesomely named
Lizzadro Museum of Lapidary Art.
Geologist Sara Johnson gives an introduction to rocks and
minerals, including how to make a basic mineral test kit and how to
identify types of rock. It will give a new definition to the term
"rock star." Just make sure to keep any truly precious gems tucked
away in your own rock collection, aka your jewelry box.
All materials provided; reservations required. Rock and Mineral
Identification. $5, $3 members. 10:30 a.m. March 10. 220 Cottage
Hill Ave. (in Wilder Park), Elmhurst. (630) 833-1616, lizzadromuseum.org.
