Stone Mart visits the stone age
Stone Mart, a North Hollywood, Calif., importer of natural stone products, invited students to its showroom on Earth Day 2006 to take a look at stone's historic fossil record. The company welcomed a class of second graders from Colfax Elementary School to a hands-on event led by a lecturer from the La Brea Tar Pits Page Museum. During the presentation, children were able to examine several fascinating fossils, including the femur from a Colombian mammoth and the skull of a saber-tooth tiger. At the close of the presentation, Stone Mart founder Albert Ganjian was presented an accolade from the local city council for his dedication in bringing geological history to the community.
