Went to the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh yesterday. Had some coal in there!

2,200 lb lump of anthracite! Extremely hard and shiny like glass. Had it set up so you could touch it and some history of how it was made and where it is found.

Lignite and Bituminous and crude oil behind the glass.

Hey Jack, did that boss's name start with A and end with hole by any chance?
