I’ve posted the fourth in a series of updates with superb specimens from John White’s collection.
The Rochester Mineralogical Symposium is one of the best mineral events of the year. Here’s my report from RMS 2019, with lots of great mineral photos.
I’ve posted a small number of specimens in this Morocco Update. From a recent find at Mibladen, there are vibrant orange wulfenite crystals – the colour of these crystals is intense. I have also posted top quality blue barites from Jebel Ouichane – these are from about four years ago (this locality is no longer producing).
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…
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.
The Tucson Gem and Mineral show was great this year! This report includes photos of mineral specimens from many new finds.
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.
