Monthly Mineral Chronicles Volume 5 Issue 10

Welcome to volume 5 issue 10 of Monthly Mineral Chronicles. This is a publication pulled together by a mineral collector for mineral collectors.

This month, in this 69 page full-colour issue we have the following articles:

  • Locality Snippet – Wheal Remfry, Cornwall. A look at the China Clay industry in Cornwall, and in particular, minerals from Wheal Remfry.
  • Cornish Mineral Heritage – A link to some of the mineral collection housed at the Royal Cornwall Museum.
  • Illustrated Minerals of Australia Volume 2, Part 1 – Danalite to Dietrichite. The next installment of a significant undertaking documenting the 1,500 or so mineral species recorded in Australia.
  • Mineral Snippet – Pentagonite
  • Minerals and Elements: Neon and Sodium. The next in the series on elements and minerals. This month, we look at neon and sodium.
  • The Harding Mine, New Mexico. Rolf takes us to the Harding Mine, a pegmatite that has the largest occurrence of microlite in the USA, and now owned by the University of New Mexico.
  • Mineral Snippet – Metatyuyamunite

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.

Each month, I will bring you mineral-related content from around the world. There will be a range of topics including mineral news and information, show reports, articles on minerals and localities, a spotlight on individual mineral dealers or collectors, and maybe an editorial now and again.

The focus won’t be restricted to any particular genre. And all of this from just US$1 per month for PatreonsKofi Members, and Subscribers. Casual access is also available at Kofi. Please use the Contact Us form to become a Subscriber.

I hope that you continue to enjoy the journey.
