I’ve posted great specimens in the new Nova Scotia Thomsonite update. These are from the small 2020 thomsonite find at Cap D’Or – they are very fine Nova Scotia thomsonites.

I’ve added an update with great new specimens from the Steve Szilard Collection. These are beautiful specimens from Quebec and Eastern Canada. This is the first of many more Canadian minerals that will grace the website this year.

I’ve posted some great chabazite specimens from Wasson’s Bluff in this Nova Scotia Update. This is the classic Canadian locality for chabazite, including the deep-coloured ones that were once known as “acadialite”, and many of the specimens in this update are this colour (there are also very fine cabinet specimens of the nice mid-orange colour.)

The Rochester Mineralogical Symposium is one of the best annual events in Mineral World. This post about RMS 2017 includes lots of great mineral photographs, with many from prominent mineral photographers Jeff Scovil and Michael Bainbridge. And hopefully, if you missed this year’s RMS, this will help you catch up – and plan for next year…

I have a just posted a small group of wonderful Canadian native copper specimens, collected in 2013 from the Colonial Copper Mine, Cap D’Or, Cumberland Co., Nova Scotia, Canada. These are beautiful intricate branches of copper crystals, some on matrix and some free floating. Really nice!
