Monthly Mineral Chronicles Vol 4 No 1

Welcome to volume 4 issue 1 of Monthly Mineral Chronicles. This is a publication pulled together by a mineral collector for mineral collectors.

This month, in this 58 page full-colour issue, we have the following articles:

  • Cutting Cabochon Days, Rolf Luetcke. Rolf takes us back to the days when he used to cut and polish cabochons.
  • Mineral Snippet – Hellyerite
  • Collector’s Guide to the Minerals of Lake Boga Part 6, Steve Sorrell. This part of the Lake Boga series looks at the remaining copper species.
  • Widmanstätten Structures, Noel Kennon. Ever wondered about those odd markings on some cut faces on meteorites? Noel digs into these patterns.
  • The Ironclad Mine – Farmcote Station, Broken Hill District, New South Wales, Trevor Dart. Trevor describes the interesting mineralogy of this lesser-known silver mine near Broken Hill.

Again this month, for many of the excellent images, is the ability to click on the image to bring up a larger version. Not only do you get a bigger version, but in some cases, the image you see published may be a cropped version.

This issue is now available at Kofi.
