I’ve added some great new specimens in this latest update from the Steve Szilard Collection. These are beautiful pieces from around the world.
There really is no event in the Mineral World year exactly like the Rochester Mineralogical Symposium. It may sound scientific and formal, but Rochester is perhaps the most welcoming and inclusive mineral gathering I know. The 2016 RMS featured great talks and photos from excellent speakers on a range of subjects.
This update features a small number of excellent specimens from the famous mines of Dal’negorsk, Russia, including beautiful fluorite, calcite, axinite – (Mn), ilvaite, quartz and twinned galena.
This Pakistan-Afghanistan Update features a small number of excellent specimens, from tourmalines and a gorgeous cabinet specimen of spessartine garnet, to some much more unusual specimens, including scapolite and pseudomorphs from Sar-e-Sang.
