Friday, Dec 2: Mother Nature's Luminarias

There are so many dynamic pairings during the holiday season: biscochitos and hot chocolate, warm fires and the smell of pine, egg nog and gingerbread, snow and fuzzy mittens, black lights and minerals. Yes, you read that last one right.

On Friday, Dec. 2, at Mama's Minerals from 5-8pm, you can see the interactive light adventure, "Mother Nature's luminarias," by putting fluorescent minerals such as calcite and willemite under ultraviolet light. Not only is this educational and fun event free for all ages, but kids will receive a mineral and fossil bag, and there will be biscochitos and hot apple cider for everyone to indulge in.  Mama's Minerals • Fri Dec 2 • 5-8pm • FREE • ALL-AGES! • View on Alibi calendar
