Hello! Remember when I said I was going to do a color episode in the last one? Well here is the post. I am going to have a special guest and we are going to do some serious research. The general information will be presented with a few examples but we need YOUR list of minerals, or mineral colors to talk about! Otherwise it is going to be a short episode!

This episode will be coming out in October, so we have plenty of time for researching!

So here are the preliminary topics please help flesh out the outline for the episode! Comment on this post or email me and I will add them to this post!
