4JK-7GRStilbite subgroup

08926960015017367042611.jpg
Hale Quarry, Graysville, Catoosa Co., Georgia, USA

Dimensions: 3 inches x 3 inches x 2.25 inches
Field of View: .5 inches

After consulting with another professional mineralogist, we determined this new species to be Stilbite which points to a hydrothermal structure. I only found a small pocket with some small zoned fluorites. There is no barite in or around the pocket itself. The quartz found in the same pocket has grown on top of the calcite proving that it was not one upwelling of heated fluid but multiple, at least 2 phases of paragenesis.

Q71-29PGold Au

03258380014992767066777.jpg
Franklin-Creighton Mine, Ball Ground, Ball Ground Mining District, Cherokee Co., Georgia, USA

Dimensions: 2.5 inches x 1.5 inches x .75 inches

This a historical piece from the Prof. E Wm. Heinrich Collection from the University of Michigan. I acquired it recently from Michael Basal in Michigan who in turn acquired it from AES museum in Houghton when they deaccesioned it. It comes with Prof. Heinrich label and it is numbered 13.1. The side and top of the specimen is layered with liberal sheets of gold. The entire side is almost covered in sheets of gold which are layered in between the layers of Schist. A fine and very rare specimen!

2UU-4DNGold Au

08343910014992329412895.jpg
Nacoochee, White Co., Georgia, USA

Dimensions: 2 inches x 2 inches x 2 inches
Field of View: 1.5 cm

This is a historical piece from an unknown professor's collection at the Michigan College of Mines, it comes with their label. I acquired it from Michael Basal in Michigan who in turn had aquired it from the AES Museum in Houghton as they were clearing out specimens not from Michigan. I have never seen a gold specimen from this locality. It is very old, probably collected in 1800s because the Michigan School of Mines name was changed in 1925! The specimen is about 2 inches long and right in the middle of a crevice in the sacchoroidal quartz is a small vug with a semi circle of gold about 1 cm across approx.
