  13. I do not have a large fossil/rock collection, but what I do have I am proud of. This is my rarest piece I have. It is a piece of petrified wood from The Allan Hills, Antarctica. During the 2001-02 summer I was fortunate enough to land a job as a janitor at McMurdo and was night janitor at Crary Science Lab. So a guy I know had went out to do work in the area and brought back samples. He was like, "you want some petrified wood?" I happily took it not knowing at the time how rare and hard this was to get. Also, this is a rather large piece, being about the size of the palm of my hand and while we moved it split along a weak plane falling into two pieces. It was ok, because I can display it better now. I have some other rocks from Antarctica I will show at some point. Since my collection is small I will spread it out over time.
