Monthly Mineral Chronicles Volume 4 Issue 10

Welcome to volume 4 issue 10 of Monthly Mineral Chronicles. This is a publication pulled together by a mineral collector for mineral collectors.

This month, in this 80 page full-colour issue we have the following articles:

  • Editorial
  • Scottish Mineral Show. Been missing mineral shows? Dagmara reports on the recently-held Scottish Mineral Show.
  • Illustrated Minerals of Australia. Volume 1, Part 8 – Bianchite to Boromullite. The next installment of a significant undertaking documenting the 1,500 or so mineral species recorded in Australia.
  • Calcite and Aragonite Variations in Bisbee, Arizona. Rolf tells us about the various diverse range of habits of calcite and aragonite found in Bisbee, Arizona, including his trips underground.
  • Mineral Snippet – Powellite. James tells us everything we need to know about this uncommon molybdate mineral.

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 available at Gumroad. Please use the Contact Us form to become a Subscriber.

I hope that you continue to enjoy the journey.
