Agate from the E.M. Barron collection of Minerals and Gems

Work to get the information about these collections progresses and should expand rapidly over the next few years as we refine and improve our databases and their relevance and accuracy.

Current progress on the major collection database involves a change to Specify for the paleontological and recent comparative specimens.

The non-biological collections such as the tektites or rocks have been or will be migrated to MSSQL server.

We appreciate database additions and corrections
