The Pinal Geology and Mineral Museum is the home of the Pinal Gem and Mineral Society. Go to their website for detailed information.
Our project for the Summer of 2016 was to create a computerized database for all the minerals in the John Weber Collection (see menu tab). A team of people worked to take the collection which had been managed as a manual system by John and transform it into a searchable electronic database. The Museum now has a database of 2, 927 minerals that John collected over his lifetime. The minerals are housed in 102 special plastic bins noted in the photo. There are 619 species of minerals with 2,187 coming from the US and of those 1,190 are from the state of Arizona. Australia was well represented with 693 minerals. Every mineral has an identifier, source, description, bin locator, weight, size and photograph, with other details to be added. Stop in a talk to our staff about the project.
