I’ve added new specimens in this new Worldwide Update, including specimens from the Pete Richards collection and the Steve Szilard collection. I hope you enjoy them!
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.
I’ve added great new specimens in a new update of pieces from the Steve Szilard Collection. Steve is a well-known and highly respected Canadian mineral collector and this update includes fine mineral specimens from all over the world.
Great new specimens from the United States feature in this US Update. Wulfenites from the Red Cloud Mine, a Kelly Mine smithsonite, a Colorado amazonite, excellent ramsdellite specimens, a beautiful specimen hosting covellite crystals, and more.
In this Broken Hill Update, I’ve added a small group of fine specimens from the classic Australian locality. Today the best sources for classic specimens from Broken Hill are old collections – these are from the collection of Milton Lavers, who was a well-known collector from Broken Hill.
I’ve added a new Namibia Update with selected excellent specimens from the Tsumeb Mine and also from the Kaokoveld Plateau in Namibia.
This Mexico Update includes great new specimens from a few localities. There are some super ones from the Milpillas Mine, with brochantite from the recent find, along with beautiful deep blue azurites and an eye-catching malachite pseudomorph after azurite. Also in this update are some sharp glassy datolites from Charcas, a gemmy danburite also from Charcas and a pretty smithsonite.
