From the quarry at Jarðböðin

06661030016057838179456.jpg
Jarðböðin, Myvatn, Skútustaðahreppur, Northeastern Region, Iceland

The wall in a small quarry in scoria close to the Jarðböðin Nature baths at Myvatn, Jarðböðin, Myvatn, Skútustaðahreppur, Northeastern Region, Iceland. The quarry is seen in the foregound.

Recognisable in the photo is an abundant white material. This does not consist of zeolites but calcite cementing the scoria pieces. Calcite occurred here as a crust of white, spiky crystals (identity confirmed by PXRD).

A small quarry in scoria close to the Jarðböðin Nature baths at Myvatn, Jarðböðin, Myvatn, Skútustaðahreppur, Northeastern Region, Iceland. The Quaary is seen in the foregound:

In the quarry , a white mineral sementing the scoria pieces were observed and collected. The mineral occured as a crust of white, spiky crystals. PXRD of the material showed it to be calcite.

Epidote is a very typical and common regional mineral in the Western Gneiss Region of Norway and is often seen as a green colored fissure mineralization, like in the photo. From a small quarry, now overgrown, at Kjerringholmen, Runde, Møre og Romsdal, Norway.
A closer look will sometimes, as here, reveal small cavities with microcrystals of epidote

A part of an outcropping, partly retrograded eclogite on Kjerringholmen, Runde, Møre og Romsdal, Norway.
Red garnet with darker symplectite rims consisting of (probably, not analyzed) amphibole-plagioclase.
(Fresh boulders of eclogite can bee seen on the pathway on the breakway nearby).

On the eclogite rock grows pale greenish bushes of a lichen, Ramalina siliquosa (Sea ivory, klipperagg in Norwegian).

An eclogite boudin

Langeneset, Runde Island, Sørøyane, Herøy, Møre og Romsdal, Norway

A small boudin of eclogite, close to the light house of Langeneset, Runde, Møre og Romsdal, Norway.

Eclogite boudins like this are typical of many of the eclogite occurrences in the Western Gneiss Region of Norway. They occurs like on the photo, in gneiss. Their margins are retrograded, transformed to blackish amphibolite (the same metamorphic facies as the gneiss around). The core is the eclogite, reddish in color and consist mostly of red garnet, pale green pyroxene, and minor amphibole, rutile and quartz.

The find of the day. An altered beryl crystal, ca 9 cm high found on the dumps of the Klauvreid pegmatite, Tokke, Telemark Norway
on a hot, rainy day in aug 2007 by my friend Peter Andresen. He had to sacrifice some drops of blood to undig it though.
Note the fly on the top of the crystal.
