Lapis lazuli and Spinel in the Canadian Arctic (video)

Last Updated: 31st Oct 2017

By Phil M. Belley

A short video on lapis lazuli and spinel from southern Baffin Island, Nunavut. Accessing these remote sites is logistically difficult, outrageously expensive, dangerous, and requires a multitude of special research permits. This video saves you the trouble!

I've very much enjoyed your videos. You offer much information in a very welcome format. Congrats on the big spinel--a helluva find! Thanks for sharing these and I look forward to more in the future.

Best regards,

Thanks Dana. The video quality will significantly improve in upcoming episodes. I'm aiming to increase the content to 8-10 minute videos while keeping a balance of entertainment, scientific information, and nature/landscape footage.

Interesting video Phil, thanks for posting. Did I see a polar bear deterrent in the background of the video?
