My Rock and Mineral Collection

By: William

My amazing rock and mineral collection is a treasure for me, and I never thought I would get this far. I have about 95 rocks, and my goal is to get 100. I don't just collect rocks, I make jewelry, and even grow my own crystals. When a person has a sweet tooth, I make a sugar crystal, which takes about 2 weeks to form. I make jewelry by tumbling rocks which takes about 1 to 2 months!!! I've been sharing these rocks in class for about 3 years! Because I have been doing this so long, I will continue collecting rocks and minerals and sharing them with my friends and family. In conclusion, on June 16th, I presented an end-of-the-year rock and
mineral collection production in class! Below is a picture of my favorite rocks from my collection.


  1. Dear William,

    Your rock mineral collection is the best collection I've seen so far. I wander how large your biggest rock is. Thank you for the Tiger Eye. I hope you get some more rocks and minerals that you like. Have a great summer.


  2. Dear William,
    Your rock collection is amazing! I can't belive how many rocks you have. I think this is an interesting hobby to do in your spare time. I think you are a brilliant student in our class, William, and I've enjoyed getting to know you.


  3. Dear Ben,

    You wrote a wonderful comment, and I would enjoy answering you question. My biggest rock is the arrowhead that the Native Americans use for several actions. It measers 8-9 inches! Have a great summer. I am glad that I know that the Tiger-Eye is in good hands.

  4. Dear Mrs. Ranney,

    I love all the rocks that William collected. My favorite rock is the brown and white one. I like it because it is big. When did this post come?
