Hand Samples stored in main Annex building, mostly from Illinois and neighboring states. Includes minerals, geodes, outcrop samples, sed. structures, industrial minerals, ore, and various personal and donated collections. Approx. 475 drawers, shelves, and bins These samples are loosely organized and located in numerous places throughout the Annex complex. Some are still in original bulk collection bags, others in drawers, bins, or shelves. Most are not cataloged. Some outcrop samples are cataloged, however about 30 shelves of boxed and numbered outcrop samples have no known catalog.

The collection of hand samples was obtained from projects of the Massachusetts Water Resource Authority (MWRA) related to the construction of water and sewer lines, throughout mainly the eastern part of the state. The collection consists of 525 hand samples from which thin sections (525) were made; in addition, there are 21 boxes containing approximately 2 pound, hand samples from work on the Cosgrove Tunnel Project. The samples were collected by Father James Skehan and each chunk of rock has an identifier painted on it, referring to the station location. The thin sections and the hand samples are stored in cardboard boxes, on pallets, at the Record Center, on Deer Island in Boston Harbor. The condition of the collection...
This collection is comprised of all field samples collected by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management Non-fuel solid mineral branch and the former U.S. Bureau of Mines housed at the Alaska Geologic Materials Center in Eagle River, Alaska. This collection represents the entirety of the BLM Alaska rock collection. The inventory contains 280 core samples, 10,182 hand samples (including thin section billets), 3371 panned concentrates, 1983 stream sediment samples, 2320 thin sections, 63,687 pulps/rejects and 2717 miscellaneous samples. These samples represent 82,466 sample sites. The U.S. Bureau of Land Management sample collection includes many sample types from core, hand, pan concentrates, stream sediments, thin sections,...

The Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) surface sample collection consists mostly of hand samples collected during projects involving DGGS geologists, but also includes pulps and residues. The accuracy of the sample metadata differs based on the time frame of the project that originated the samples. The DGGS projects fall in two categories: (1) legacy projects where sample locality information was not recorded systematically in either a physical or digital format and (2) recent and current projects where sample locality information has been recorded in digital databases. The DGGS surface sample collection also includes pulps and residues in addition to hand samples. It is estimated this...

This is a collection of over 14,000 physical sediment samples that accompany the gamma-ray logs. There are an estimated 2168 sample sets. The samples are stored in whirl bags labeled with the unique gamma-ray log number and depth of sample. The bags are stored in core boxes labeled with the unique gamma-ray number and range of depth. The number of samples per log primarily depends on the depth of the log. Due to poor original storage methods many samples were lost, therefore there are close to 800 gamma-ray logs without available physical samples.

Collection includes thousands of samples collected during project work. Some samples were acquired during systematic collections for mine properties.

Hand specimens of rocks collected as a part of field work conducted primarily by present and former WGNHS staff members. Entries include rock hand samples related to WGNHS research projects with adequate geographic location information. These are available in the National Digital Catalog as of September 14, 2010. Documentation supporting other individual items in this data collection is currently being developed. Each hand sample is tied to a field notebook. Accession lists for the had samples are available, but electronic versions of these notebooks are not available. Plans to integrate these into the existing master database of WGNHS data is under development. The collection includes some material that is tied...

Includes a cumulative 228 cubic feet of archival rock and sediment samples and 284 cubic feet of working rock and sediment samples. Material is mostly from IGS and retired IGS geologists, but includes some rocks from retired USGS personnel. 1 cubic foot Mt. St. Helens ash.IGS/USGS rocks and sediment samplesOf particular concern are the rock samples from retired geologists. These need to be catalogued and documented before the relevant data connected to the specimens is lost.

This collection is composed of hand samples collected by (mostly) non-USGS employed Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) researchers, from Alaskan Volcanoes. It includes rocks from AVO field projects as well as samples collected by AVO-supported graduate students. It is estimated that there are about 5000 hand samples in this collection. The Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys division of AVO has no direct mandate to maintain these samples, but has volunteered their time and resources to maintain the collection as needed.

These are crushed coal samples collected by Indiana Geological Survey coal geologist from Indiana coal mines and borehole locations. They represent various coal beds of the Pennsylvanian age. They are usually crushed to 0.8 mm size for mineral analysis and vitrinite reflectance measurements. Plastic jars of 100ml volume.

Albert V. Carozzi collection of world class petrologic hand specimens. Worldwide, though primarily United States and Europe. Carozzi Collection - Petrologic Hand Specimens

A collection of approximately 5,750 outcrop samples and mineral specimens is maintained by the Florida Geological Survey. These samples are cross-indexed by formation, lithology, county and location. The collection is referred to as the "M-Series." The M-Series is particularly valuable given Florida's high rate of growth and development. Surface exposures of critical lithologies have become inaccessible with the continued proliferation of roadways, shopping centers, parking lots and high-rise housing. The collection is housed in cardboard boxes and stored on static shelve units. There are 1-2 staff members associated with this collection; however they only work with the collection for less than 10% of their time...

A synoptic collection of minerals from New York State dating to the 1830s. Non-New York specimens represent about 25% of extant species. The rocks in the collection are derived primarily from geologic investigations and mapping over the last 50 years.Primarily mineral specimens, some rock specimens
