Tellus Museum Visit, Part 3: Individual Georgia Minerals

This next post of Tellus Museum features individual minerals from Georgia. There are many good displays of Georgia minerals at the museum, and I picked some noteworthy individual specimens to feature in this post from within those displays. I tried keeping a variety from all the different regions of the state, and as in the previous post, left the Graves Mountain minerals to get their own individual post.
