Monthly Mineral Chronicles Volume 3 Issue 2

Welcome to volume 3 issue 2 of Monthly Mineral Chronicles. This is a publication pulled together by a mineral collector for mineral collectors.

This month, in this 70 page full-colour issue, we have:

  • An article on the Last Chance Mine, Courtland, Arizona. Who knew that one mine could produce so many different habits of azurite?
  • Retgersite Mineral Snippet.
  • A look at the Broken Hill (New South Wales) smelters, and some of the slag minerals that occur there.
  • A Collector’s Guide to Paramount Canyon, New Mexico, one of the few localities worldwide that produces red beryl.
  • In Case You Missed It
  • The Loxton (South Australia) Gem and Mineral Show.

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 Patreons and Subscribers. Casual access is Gumroad. Please use the Contact Us form to become a Subscriber.

I hope that you continue to enjoy the journey.
