Spoils of the Day

03382020014947030793807.jpg
Woolcunda Woolshed, Woolcunda Station, Coombah, Windeyer Co., New South Wales, Australia

Some of the gypsum (desert rose) clusters collected on the day. The sand in which they form is left on the samples until they have been taken back home for cleaning. This sand helps protect them and the larger clusters have a better chance of staying intact on the return journey home. The crystals are put into buckets or plastic tubs and filled with extra sand as packing. The sand is simply washed away with running water to expose the crystal clusters. Collected on the 19th of August 2012. Photo taken on my Iphone camera.

Woolcunda Woolshed, Woolcunda Station, Coombah, Windeyer Co., New South Wales, Australia

One of the Junior members of the Broken Hill Mineral Club down in the hole. The gypsum (desert rose) layer had just been reached and several nice clusters had already been retrieved - shown on the left of the picture - when the photo was taken. More crystals were seen on the back face of the hole, however some extra digging was needed to remove a dangerous overhang before we were able to remove them. Photo taken using my Iphone camera.
