Monthly Mineral Chronicles Volume 7 Issue 3

Welcome to volume 7 issue 3 of Monthly Mineral Chronicles. This is a publication pulled together by a mineral collector for mineral collectors.

This month, in this 96 page full-colour issue we have the following articles:

  • Minerals and Elements: Copper. The next in the series, copper, a versatile and recyclable metal that is an excellent conductor of electricity.
  • Mineral Snippet – Manandonite, a rare lithium silicate, first described 112 years ago.
  • Illustrated Minerals of Australia Volume 3, Part 8 – Hardystonite to Hematite. The next installment of a significant undertaking documenting the 1,500 or so mineral species recorded in Australia.
  • Locality Snippet – Grisons, Switzerland. This month, we look at the minerals of the Swiss Canton, Grisons.
  • Minerals of the Tolwong Mine – Part 1. An article originally written in 2006 but never published.
  • Christmas Mine, Gila County, Arizona, Boulder Story. This month, Rolf tells us about a dioptase-bearing boulder found some 130km from where it should have been!

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.
