Discover the World Beneath Your Feet: Introducing the Enhanced Pinal Geology and Mineral Museum Website! Unearthing the Past, Understanding the Present, and Envisioning the Future

Greetings, fellow geology enthusiasts and curious minds alike!

Please excuse the enthusiasm and hype. Bob’s been working a long time and really hard on the new website. It’s ready for launch a few days earlier than the deadline, though of course there are teething issues. More will be coming, and he’s working to pretty it up as fast as he can.

Today, we are thrilled to unveil the all-new and improved Pinal Geology and Mineral Museum website. As passionate geologists and mineralogists, we understand the importance of knowledge sharing and exploration, and that’s precisely what we have aimed to achieve with the expanded features of our website.

Delve into Geological Wonders – Places to Visit:
Our love for geology extends beyond the walls of the museum, and we believe that some of the most captivating geological wonders lie outside, in the breathtaking landscapes of our planet. With our website’s new “Geological Places” section, you can now embark on virtual journeys to awe-inspiring geological landmarks. From towering mountain ranges to deep, mysterious caverns, each destination comes with a vivid description of its geological significance, helping you grasp the earth’s dynamic history right from the comfort of your home.

Unveiling the Faces Behind the Rocks – Geologist Biographies:
The foundation of any museum lies in the knowledge and expertise of its passionate curators and geologists. To pay homage to the brilliant minds that have contributed to our understanding of Earth’s geological marvels, we have introduced an exclusive “Geology People” section. Get to know the remarkable individuals who dedicated their lives to unraveling the mysteries of our planet, each with their unique contributions and groundbreaking discoveries.

Journey into the Depths of Earth – Articles on Diverse Geology, Mineralogy, and Paleontology Topics:
Learning about geology is an endless adventure, and our aim is to foster an insatiable thirst for knowledge for every visitor. With our expanded repertoire of articles (we call them exhibits), you can now quench your curiosity on a vast range of topics. Whether you’re intrigued by the formation of minerals, the fossilized remains of ancient creatures, or the geological processes shaping landscapes, our comprehensive articles will satiate your hunger for geological insights. Plus Dinosaurs!

The Language of the Earth – Glossary of Geological Terms:
Geology, like any science, has its own language—a lexicon of terms that might seem daunting to newcomers. To make your journey into the world of geology a seamless experience, our website now offers a user-friendly “Glossary of Geological Terms.” Empower yourself with a clear understanding of the technical jargon, empowering you to comprehend scientific papers, textbooks, and interpret field observations like a seasoned geologist. And as you read anything on the site, look for words underlined with a dotted line – hover your cursor over the word, and you’ll get the glossary entry for that word! Try geology!

For Teachers and other Educators

Of course, it’s not just for educators, but we’ve got lesson plans, materials, and more. More are coming, and if you don’t see what you need, ask – Bob may already be working on it.

As we embark on this digital journey, we are filled with excitement and optimism about the potential it holds for creating a more informed and interconnected community of geology lovers. Whether you’re a professional geologist, a student, or someone simply captivated by the wonders of the Earth, the new Pinal Geology and Mineral Museum website has something extraordinary to offer you.

Join us in our quest to explore the fascinating world of geology, understand our planet’s past, and envision its future. Visit our revamped website today and be a part of this geological odyssey!
Remember, the adventure awaits you at

Happy Exploring!
Bob and the rest of The Pinal Geology and Mineral Museum Team

    Thank you for launching this new website. It is fabulous! The expanded features offer so much more knowledge, and relevant information right on the front page and is users friendly.
    Great job and kudos to Bob!

  2. The overall feel of the site seems great… I was attracted by your images of minerals because we have very similar display cases we want to use for our much smaller mineral collection, but no matter which browser I use, I can’t get the slide show to change from the first image. Not sure what’s going on. I’d also love to see something on your “mineral identification” link. I’m not normally a mineral curator, of quartz, but I thought it might be gneiss to look around your museum, virtually! Seems really interesting!

    1. Thanks for the comment. The Mineral ID section is under quick-action construction. If you check back in a week, it should have lots more information. Good luck with your display! I’m sorry the slide show doesn’t work. I’ll look into if for sure, and see if there’s something I can fix.
