Old Gray House Rocks and Minerals

The Old Gray House is pleased to offer you a wide variety of mineral specimens provided by Ken Gliesman.  Ken has been a regular visitor to the Old Gray House since we began in 1992.

Each time he has visited with us we have shared information about rocks and shells.  Rocks have always had a fascination for we who grew up on Hatteras Island.  You might want to take time to read my Rock Stories.

As a result of our mutual love for shells and rocks we have joined forces to add to your enjoyment when you visit the Old Gray House by having Specimen Rocks for you to view.  It is interesting to note that the materials Ken provides us are 95% natural rocks and mineral specimens.  Approximately 50% of these items he has personally collected.   Ken has collected extensively throughout the nation, climbed mountains, and dug in quarries to bring you these wonders of nature. He prides himself on his self-collected minerals and specimen grade materials.
