A magnificent banquet of rocks greets you at the Arizona Mining and Mineral Museum, in downtown Phoenix, Arizona.

   Here's just a sampler of what awaits you at the Arizona Mining and Mineral Museum in downtown Phoenix, Arizona.  This "banquet of rocks" looks like a delicious array, but the offerings are a little old, since they've been around for a few million years.
   Seriously though, this museum houses one of the finest mineral collections anywhere, and it's a place where you can spend hours looking at world class mineral specimens, fossils, gemstones, and meteorites.  The Museum also has a stunning "black light" room where you can view lots of pretty rocks, all radiating beautiful colors into the darkness.
   Tracing its origin all the way back to 1884, the collection here has been growing ever since.  As Arizona is known as the Copper State, the displays include a particularly rich assortment of copper minerals -- turquoise, malachite, azurite, and chrysocolla among them.  Arizona is the number one mining state in the USA, producing the largest value of non-fuel minerals.
