The display is divided into three sections: Industrial, focusing on minerals used in manufacturing with an emphasis on Toledo-built Jeeps. Here you can see the raw materials used in making many automotive parts; Rocks and Minerals, showcasing a broad selection of rock and mineral samples; and Fossils, a beautiful display of the remains of plants and animals from long ago. Be sure to take a close look at the Geologic Time Spiral to see how old these specimens really are!
