A variety of minerals and gems from around St. Lawrence County is on display at the New York State Museum in Albany. Above is a sample of sphalerite found in Pierrepont, left, and a gem carved from the same material, which came from Balmat. A slideshow here includes more pictures of local geology in the exhibit.
