And the winner of the super terrific Accretionary Wedge #42 geologic prize pack is…

February 1, 2012 in Fieldwork

Maitri’s entry was chosen at random from all of the Accretionary Wedge #42 entries and will receive the prize pack consisting of a volcanic bomb, a piece of mantle peridotite, ash from the 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helens, ash from the 640 ka eruption of Yellowstone, a rough diamond cube, a piece of Pennsylvania anthracite, and a spectacular piece of garnet amphiboolite.  Congratulations!  Also, thank you to all who sent in entries, which are all listed below.  This was a lot of fun and we all got to see some very interesting geology right under our coffee makers and blenders.  My own entry will be posted soon.
