Dr. John Rakovan – Miami University, Oxford, Ohio – “Silver and Gold – with new insights on wire formation”

May 10 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

It does seem a bit out of season, but I believe I hear the voice of singer Burl Ives singing the 1964 song Silver and Gold from the movie Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Strange, but that’s what John mentioned when he agreed to speak to us on the subject of wire silver and gold.

John and a team of other mineral scientists have been working on a project to determine the nature of silver and gold wires, and how to tell natural- from manmade-wires. There has been some very interesting information determined from this study, and John has agreed to share some of that with us at our next meeting. Perhaps he will sing a bit of the song to you, as he did for me?

Silver and gold
Everyone wishes for silver and gold
How do you measure its worth?
Just by the pleasure it gives here on earth

Guests are most welcome at our meetings. This program will be great for folks of every age and
experience level.
