 Secondary crystallized rhodonite in a vein in

 franklinite, willemite ore containing chisel

 shaped pink rhodonite crystals, yellow

 manganaxinite plates, and clear willemite

 prisms. Lots happening in a small area. This

 Bustamite, clinohedrite, hardystonite from the 'Mill Site'. The fluorescent bustamite, clinohedrite combination

 is outstanding and unusual and this hardystonite is unusually bright. Native copper and glaucochroite were seen in

 this material (NOT this specimen) also. Brown streaks in the bustamite- minor johannsenite exsolution? Very unusual!

 Specimen size - approx   8.5 cm.  X  7.5 cm.   X  7 cm.

Mineral Specimens - Bustamite, Hardystonite, Clinohedrite, Franklin, NJ

 Massive pink bustamite with hardystonite and clinohedrite. These

 short ultraviolet photos are somewhat overexposed. The specimen

 is not as vivid in real life. Even so, it is impressive and this material

 is hard to find. The hardystonite is unusually bright. On top of

 that, this bustamite has a tugtupite look under long-wave

 ultraviolet.

 Specimen size - approx 15.5 cm. X 8.5 cm. X 7 cm.
