Bruce Kelley's Photo Gallery

FDK-UXHMimetite, Fluorite

Blue Bell Mine, Zzyzx, Soda Mts, Silver Lake Mining District, San Bernardino Co., California, USA

Field of View: 0.85 mm

Sprays of acicular yellow mimetite crystals perched on colorless fluorite octahedra. I'm not sure what the black matrix coating is.
These were found in the same pocket of the 2C adit as the plumbotsumite and TL plumbophyllite.

FOV: 0.85 mm
Stacking: 102 frames @ 5 microns

1KG-XMNAnnabergite

Georgine Mine, Candelaria Junction, Candelaria Mining District, Mineral Co., Nevada, USA

Field of View: 2.28 mm

Dolomite matrix with sprays of green annabergite crystals to 6 mm. Most of the crystals I found are banged up since this surface was exposed in the pit, but these are pretty good. Also on the specimen (but not in photo), sprays of colorless acicular crystals to 2 cm (presumably aragonite); coatings of an unknown white, botryoidal mineral; and minor opal.

FOV: 2.28 mm

Bird Nest drift, Otto Mountain, Baker, Soda Mts, Silver Lake Mining District, San Bernardino Co., California, USA

Field of View: 0.90 mm

Bright yellow, 40-micron hexagonal crystals of mimetite from the Birdnest Drift. Also on this specimen's quartz matrix (but not in photos): flattened wulfenite, galena, minium, chrysocolla, hessite... the usual colorful Otto Mtn mix.

Y5E-K2GNamibite, Dolomite

Blue Jay Mine, Goodsprings Mining District, Spring Mts, Clark Co., Nevada, USA

Field of View: .54 mm

Flat crystals of green namibite in dolomite matrix. Most of the namibite at this mine is contained within minute cracks in the massive dolomite, but once in a while you can find one that grew free crystals into a larger crack or small vug like this one.

Field of View: 0.54 mm
Stacking: 70 frames at 2.5 µm

A2C-QFQSerpierite, Hemimorphite

Santa Rosa Mine, Malpais Mesa, Inyo Mts, Inyo Co., California, USA

Field of View: 1.34 mm

Sky-blue serpierite & colorless hemimorphite from Santa Rosa Mine, Inyo Co., CA.
