Minerals of the Bancroft Area

This is an old favourite from the Gemboree: Minerals of the Bancroft Area put together by Wendy Melanson (of Hawthorneden). These specimens were mostly from her and Frank's personal collection with a few extras cobbled together from other sources, but they recently sold their Canadian collection, and had to ask really nicely to borrow them back for the display.

I won't go through what they all are, but if you look closely, you'll see that each is 'tied' to its location on a map - very cool.

On display at the 2011 Bancroft Gemboree.
