Celestine as the PA State Mineral

Penn State's Geosciences Professor Peter J. Heaney testified in Harrisburg on the morning of October 4 at a public hearing on behalf of HB 1177 to support the adoption of celestine as the Pennsylvania State mineral.  He got started on this project last January after being contacted by a seventh grade student from Central Pennsylvania named Royce Black asking him to assist his campaign. Royce has handed letters to every state representative and senator, and Peter testified along with a member of the State Geological Suvey.
