Students at the Glitter Pit

Glitter Pit

Students at the Glitter PitOn Saturday, February 11th, Cam and the TFL students went to a little place in St. George called Glitter mountain to mine a mineral called selenite. Selenite is a cool rock that grows in thin, clear plates, turning almost glass like in clarity. When you break it, it flakes off into glittery pieces, hence the name “Glitter Mountain.” Eric tried to fly his new drone but it was so windy that it went the wrong direction and crashed. Luckily it was ok. We came home with some fabulous pieces of the clear rock and, happily for mister Eric, an un-destroyed drone.
