Mineral Land Rocks


Next to the Rainbow Caverns Mine Train attraction in Disneyland was a unique store called Mineral Hall which was among the first "blacklight" stores in the U.S. Among the souvenirs you could acquire at this store were minerals in small cardboard blister packs. These ranged in price from ten cents up to fifty cents.
