A donation valued at more than $15,000 from Fred and Katrina Thiele, owners of Natural Expressions in Gilbert, will aid Chandler-Gilbert Community College geology students this fall.

The Thieles, who will be moving their operation to the Quartzsite area, donated a 3,400 pound basalt boulder with peridot/olivine inclusions, 770 pounds of dinosaur coprolite (petrified dung) from Utah, and 4,130 pounds of petrified wood of various plant species.

Green Tree Nursery in Gilbert assisted with transportation of the donated items.
