So one of my sons is 9 and big into rocks and minerals. Anyone know a good Christmas present idea to nurture this interest?

Take him to Reed Gold Mine. Go to a hobby shop and see what they have. You can also find a local gem/mineral club (there is one in Charlotte) and they will probably have some great suggestions.

(and I've completely looked past the fact that you think geology is nerdy) :)

Just kidding. I'm a geography major, and people always ask me one of two things...

"So you like rocks?" or "What the f*ck are you gonna do with a geography degree? We already know where everything is, we have enough maps..."

Maybe get him some Geodes. I found them really interesting when I was a kid and now I've seen stores sell huge ones for a good amount of money. I know they make kits and might be something fun to do with him...at least you get to break stuff.
