Paul Favia's Photo Gallery

6N1-M6NMimetite

Rowley Mine, Theba, Painted Rock Mining District, Painted Rock Mts, Maricopa Co., Arizona, USA

Field of View: 1 mm

KPE-CYPLinarite, Brochantite

War Eagle Mine, Shoshone Mines, Upper Noonday Camp, Nopah Range, Inyo Co., California, USA

Field of View: 0.65 mm

Exceedingly small but well formed Brochantite on eroded Linarite. Its likely that the Brochantite was a secondary mineralization phase given the sharpness of the crystal. From a very small, now depleted, zone initially discovered by fellow collector Dan Evanich during a recent trip.

88L-EPRVanadinite

Pure Potential Mine, Silver Mining District, Trigo Mountains, La Paz Co., Arizona, USA

Field of View: 3.0 mm

Broken section of crystal reveals an upset during formation. I believe the yellow mineral to also be vanadinite, likely forming as a "filling" within the hoppered section of the original crystal, followed by continued growth. Interesting to note the fracture perpendicular to the c axis on the undamaged crystal. Given lack of any cleavage for this species, suspect this is evidence of a similar upset. 214 images taken with Nikon D810, Nikkor 200 mm, Mitutoyo 10x M Plan APO , Stackshot, and Zerene.
