The Collections

page 48

The Collections.

Have increased very largely in the past year, and now embrace a very full series of models of crystals and specimens illustrating the various minerals and rocks, and their asociations, ores, coals, petroleums, fire-clays, building materials, etc, from many parts of this country and Europe; botanical and zoological forms; characteristic fossils of the different geological ages; metallurgical products, illustrating the various operations in the treatment of ores by the wet and dry methods. These collections are used to illustrate lectures, etc, and are at all times accessible to the students, so that they may become thoroughly familiar with the character and modes of occurrence of the minerals, rocks, and ores they are likely to meet with in the field, and the various products in metallurgical operations.

Special facilities are now offered for critical studies in Microscopic Lithology, thorough instruction being given in the preparation of mineral, rock, and fossil sections, and their examination under the microscope. Orders will be received from outside parties for the cutting and mounting of objects.
