We are pleased to report to our ISG Community two new outreach programs to assist local colleges and universities through the gem and mineral collections of the ISG, and our Amazing Gem and Mineral Museum. Today we had the honor of a visit from media specialist Aaron Ellis and geologist Carlos Flores from San Antonio College's Title V Program: Adalante Tejas. This program has developed advanced 3D imaging technology that is being used to build one of the world's most complete 3 dimensional image databases of gems and minerals for the purpose of advancing the study of geology (gems and minerals) on all levels. At left you see the result of this technology with the fossilized palm wood specimen from the ISG / Amazing Gem and Mineral Museum collection.
