A while back, I stopped in to the Earth Sciences Dept to look at some meteorites which needed to be photographed. While I was there, I noticed some very odd looking medallions sitting in a box on the counter. These were not the smooth precious metal medallions we see on a fairly regular basis. They were rough, and looked like they were made of some kind of finely crushed gravel or stone. I asked Ian Nicklin, the Mineralogy and Geology Technician in the Dept. about them.
