Xmas present for person into geochem

  1. Dec 19, 2009 #1
    I just remembered one of my cousins is starting university/college soon & last time I saw her she seemed to be really into geology or geochem with a big rock collection, etc. Should I get her a lump of coal for christmas or would that not go over well? :rofl: I'm kind of thinking of what everyone else would think because I don't know that it would be fair.

    Coal is not a bad gift, if you were able to get Parkgate coal {UK}. Sometimes called Bright Hards which contain small spherical pyrites inclusions known as Brazils.

    I would enjoy a sample of it, but then again, I'm really easy to please.:tongue2:
