We have done other work at the U of A but this project was truly a special honor. The Geosciences Department is the home of the true “rock-hounds”, the scientists who study all the minerals that comprise the Earth’s crust. Secondly, the logistics involved to hang 6’x10’ slabs vertically on the wall some 20’ from the ground was a tremendous challenge. A total of 6 slabs were hung in different sections of the building creating a dramatic effect. Those specimens included exotic stones such as; Volcano, Titanium, Vitoria Regia, Sandalis Satin, and Azul Fantasy.

The reaction of Faculty, Staff and Students was one of awe: “a real example of nature as art,” “this is a feature that will become a must see on campus,” and “Stunning!”
