4-H Rock, Mineral, and Fossil Collections (in Kentucky)

Geology (6048) label instructions for rocks, minerals, and /or fossils collections

First, determine if your specimen is a rock, mineral, and/or fossil. This website has links to sites that can help you determine if the specimen you've collected is a rock, mineral, or fossil. There are also many books that can help with rock, mineral, and fossil identification. Next, use the appropriate label for a rock, mineral, or fossil and follow the label instruction for your specific specimen. Each year (class) can use rocks, minerals, and fossils in their display, but rock specimens must use rock labels, mineral specimens must use mineral labels, and fossil specimens must use fossil labels. Make sure that the total number of specimens do not exceed the number allowed for the year (class) you are entering.
