What most of us like about minerals is what we see at face value: theyre shiny. You can thank their crystalline lattice structure for that its the way minerals grow and it takes thousands of years for it to happen. So when you see the new exhibit Minerals Rock at the Museum of Discovery and Science (401 SW Second St., Fort Lauderdale), youll see the final product of lots of time, combined with heat and large amounts of pressure. Plus, they look cool. Check it out today; the exhibit is on loan from Broward Community College. Visit www.mods.org.
