Nova Scotia Update – November 2016
Posted by: Raymond McDougall on 11.23.2016 | Filed under: Latest, Recent Mineral Updates

 

I’ve added some excellent gmelinite specimens from Two Islands and Five Islands, Nova Scotia, in the new Nova Scotia Update (click here).┬áThis update includes nice analcime and stilbite specimens as well.

I’ve also posted a new article on the blog, to give a better idea about these two Islands localities: Mineral Collecting on the Islands – Bay of Fundy (click here).
