Centuries of geology's fascinating finds
Although Aristotle in ancient Greece theorized about the slow changes that shape Earth's structure, it is the 18th century Scottish farmer and naturalist James Hutton who is credited as the Father of modern geology.

Brilliant crystals, mining and maps, and formidable rock formations are all in the geologist's realm of expertise.
