Monthly Mineral Chronicles Vol 6 No 2

Welcome to volume 6 issue 2 of Monthly Mineral Chronicles. This is a publication pulled together by a mineral collector for mineral collectors.

This month, in this 77 page full-colour issue we have the following articles:

  • Illustrated Minerals of Australia Volume 2, Part 5 – Erionite to Evansite. The next installment of a significant undertaking documenting the 1,500 or so mineral species recorded in Australia.
  • Density and Density of Minerals. Think you know about density? Check out Noel’s article to see if you really do!
  • Mineral Snippet – Prehnite
  • Locality Snippet – Nizhnii Tagil, Sverdlovsk Oblast, Russia. This month, we travel back in time and look at an old specimen with a bit of history.
  • Collecting at the Stewart Mine in California. This month, Rolf tells a tale of elbaite, oranges, and a near miss!
  • A short note on Collecting Antique & Historic Minerals. James discusses the case for retaining historic labels.
  • Minerals and Elements: Phosphorus. The next in the series on elements and minerals. This month, we look at Phosphorus, an element essential to life.

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.
