I’ve posted a new update featuring the first of many specimens to come, from the collection of my friend Tracy A. Kimmel. Tracy built an excellent, substantial collection of fine minerals, and I acquired it this year. I have also written a post about Tracy (see Profiles and Tributes), and I really hope you’ll enjoy reading about her – she was a remarkable person.
This Iran Update includes beautiful top-quality hemimorphite groups in pale hues of blue, subtly ranging from an ice-blue to a hue a bit closer to the warmer hue of seawater. Also in this update is a striking wulfenite with a coating of calcite crystals, and several specimens of vibrant orange mimetite.
