and fossils is a popular hobby of collecting, identifying and displaying mineral
and fossil specimens. The profession of working with minerals is mineralogy.
There are many options for displaying minerals and fossils. One option is an
adjustable wire display where you hold the piece from underneath. The wire is
bendable and the user bends the wire to custom fit their piece. Another option
is easels that have metal arms that are adjustable by moving them side to side.
These come in a number of configurations and usually have an acrylic base. Caliper
stands are another popular option for displaying minerals and they come in
brass or chrome. They have two threaded prongs that tighten in on the piece from
opposite ends. This holds the piece floating in the center. Other options are
acrylic pronged stands and other types of easels.
