          PSEUDOMALACHITE

WEST BOGAN MINE,

COLLERINA HALL, N.S.W.

Rich deep green coloured pseudomalachite is formed over a matrix of quartzite making a nice contrast. Rarely is this mineral seen when out collecting & the only other place we have seen it is Mt Glorious near Cloncurry.

This form is glossy and subtly botryoidal.

SIZE: 20mm W x 13mm x 21mm H

PRICE: $ 50

ITEM NUMBER: TN106

    

CALCITE ROSE

TINDALS QUARRY, KYOGLE N.S.W.

This is a very fine pale calcite rose of very good form from that great quarry near Kyogle which was full of basalt containing many wonderful and sometimes bafflingly wierd forms of crystalised minerals. These roses however are neither wierd nor baffling- just simply stunning little treasures. Each sharp blade of  crystal is in perfect condition to form an exquisite rose effect.   A must have .

SIZE: 31mm L x 28mm W x 16mm H

PRICE: $ 25       ITEM NUMBER: TN107

  

  

HYALITE  -  SQUARETOP MOUNTAIN

KAIMKILLENBUN, QUEENSLAND

SIZE: 22mm L x 16mm W x 16mm H

Just like molten glass, the waterclear Hyalite flows

over the matrix and remains captured forever just how it

cooled. It is a fascinating mineral and not found in too many places

in Australia - Springsure is the other area which comes to mind and

in both instances it was discovered  hiding in the little holes

in the basalt.  

PRICE: $30

ITEM NUMBER: TN108

At one end a doubly terminated crystal inercepts two others - see                                                                                           picture on right-

                                                    SIZE: 41mm L x 39mm W x 31mm H     PRICE: $ 45                                                     ITEM NUMBER: TN109
