A full cabinet size example of galena, chalcopyrite, and dolomite mined in the 1980s.

I'm quite sure it IS from West Fork Mine. I have a West Fork galena specimen that has exactly the same crystals, quite distinctive material for that mine (though also "normal" cubes occur there).

PostPosted: Sep 26, 2017 19:16    Post subject: Bayley Viburnum Trend Calcite Collection  

I have been working on a comprehensive collection of Viburnum Trend Calcite. Over the next few days I will share some of my pieces.

The mines of the Viburnum Trend from North to South are:

Viburnum No. 29 Mine
Viburnum No. 27 Mine
Viburnum No. 28 Mine
Casteel Mine
Magmont Mine

It may be accurate to include Magmont West and Indian Creek Mine in the list as well.

Enjoy,
Ed Bayley

Thanks Pete! More to come. That Brushy Creek twin is debatable. It's one you'd have to handle to be sure of. The etching complicates identification.

If you mean the image Brushy Creek 3, already posted, I would agree that it appears to be a twin. I would say it is a twin on {0001} (of course with the standard caution that it's hard to tell from a single photo); {0001} is probably the most common kind of twin. I think the specimen is more interesting for its etched overall form; the twinning is kind of an extra treat!

Ed, your collection of calcites is incredibly beautiful, thank you so much for presenting them in such good pictures! Hard to pick a favourite among these beauties, but to me, the one from Fletcher Mine (Fletcher Mine.JPG) is the greatest of these great specimens. I guess the combination with galena makes it my special favourite ;-)

I hope you'll show us a lot more of these treasures :-)

Thanks in advance
Tobi

Yes, that's the one I am referring too. The {001} twins were much more common there than {012}, which to my knowledge is the only other occurrence in the Viburnum Trend.

Thank you! More to come. That Fletcher specimen I call "The Trio." I found that in Tucson.

PostPosted: Oct 01, 2017 10:30    Post subject: Re: Bayley Viburnum Trend Calcite Collection  

This is one specimen I've been asking around about and have not yet found an answer. I've noticed some of the No. 29 Mine Calcites are labeled as "Czar Drift." In fact, the two that I have seen, this one being one of them, includes a Jim's Minerals label, from the Boron, CA show. My question is, are those specimens labeled "Czar Drift" part of the same big-cavern 1995 find in No. 29 Mine? They look identical, but I want to be sure. I have also not been able to find any reports of the No. 29 Mine discovery, which shocked me since it was so significant. Thanks in advance for any further knowledge on this!


Best,
Ed Bayley

Very nice specimens, especially of the various calcite habits.

One long running question about the Viburnum Trend specimens involves the multicolored iridescent chalcopyrite. Your last picture shows a few gold colored examples next to the galena and calcite. Many collectors and dealers say that the vast majority of these specimens are either enhanced or fabricated with a very brief acid soaking of non-iridescent crystals. Other collectors and dealers say that while you can enhance the iridescence, most good specimens are, in fact, natural. The very very brief soaking seems not to affect the calcites, dolomites and other minerals.

All that I know is that there are both opinions, the specimens are colorful, relatively affordable and very commonly out there in the mineral marketplace. BOB

That's interesting. I did not know any of that had been going on, but there are some specimens with so much blue and purple chalcopyrite that it's hard to beleive it could be natural. Certainly with the big plates of chalcopyrites, doing something like that might make them far more desirable. I'm definitely not about to enhance mine though, but I'm curious to test it out if I find a stray crumble of chalcopyrite.

This is my favorite Sweetwater specimen. A perfect V shaped intergrowth on matrix. There are a number of these, but they are not twins. Twins from Sweetwater, in my experience so far, do not exist.

Great pix of great Viburnum Trend specimens, but there seems to be an inconsistency here.

We have this thread and the Missouri portion of the "Mineralogical Trip Thru the States of the USA" thread. Similar photos in both threads seems to be unnecessary duplication of Missouri mining districts. Should the threads be kept separate or, perhaps, should they be merged for simplicity? BOB

I don't mind merging them if it better consolidates information.
