AA Mineral Specimens - AA Mineral Specimens Update

13th May 2009

Hi Everyone,
This week we have a number of great Aussie specimens.

From the Range Mine in the Northern Territory, we have a couple of crystalline Saleeite specimens encased in radiation-resistant acrylic, which are part of a small set produced for VIPs at the mine's opening in 1979.

We also have a number of Azurite Suns typical of the Northern Territory's Malbunka Copper Mine. Some feature malachite pseudomorphs.

And from Broken Hill, a complex cluster of Cerussite crystals.

Our single Jeremejevite crystal graduates from a striking blue to an almost clear complex termination.

From the Pacific nation of Papua New Guinea - a beautiful specimen of crystalline gold.

And finally, from the classic location of Sweet Home Mine, Colorado, USA, a number of Rhodochrosite thumbnails featuring that unmistakable gemmy Sweet Home translucence and colouring.
