   At the GSA meetings Dallas,November 1973,
the Mineralogical Societyof America displayedthe
photographson the following pagesin an impromptu
identification contest. Visitors to our booth were
askedto identify the rocks or minerals in thesepic-
tures. The largest number of correct identifications
was for photographnumber 8, but no one got num-
ber 1 (a blow below the belt). Photos 2 and 3 were
in color. (All photographsare printed approximately
Vz ther display dimensions).
   In easeyou would like to try your skill, the photo-
graphs (and photographers) are identified on page
