Ice, H2O in Bamble

Bamble, Telemark, Norway

Dimensions: 60 cm x 40 cm x 40 cm
Weight: 96 kg

A very common mineral in the nordic hemisphere: Ice.(See how to establish a large exhibition collection):he,he! Blocks approx. size given.
Historical pic. showing a worker placing fresh water iceblocks inside the storehouse. Pic. taken in wintertime. See the clarity of the ice! In the southern part of Norway ice export was a quite big industry around 1900 until gasoperated refrigerators were invented.
The winter 1895-96 almost 130 men worked in 20-25 weeks in this business. At the same time alltogether 52 iceponds and 101 ice storehouses operated in the same area. This season 125.000 tons of ice were produced into blocks, at a value of 0,5 million NOK. The export from this district counted for approx. half of Norway`s total ice export. So: times changes!

View towards Streymoy from Vàgar

Vágar Island, Faroe Islands, Denmark

Photo from my first trip to the Faroe Islands in august 2001 with friends from Telemark Geologiforening (our local Norwegian mineral society).
This is the Vestmanna strait under which a subsea roadtunnel connecting the two islands was under construction at the time.
Getting access to this tunnel resulted in fantastic specimens of most of the zeolithes on this archipelago.
