PostPosted: Jan 05, 2017 04:31    Post subject: Tucson Show 2017 - The fine mini-guide from Tom Moore / Mineralogical Record  

Barcelona 01/03/2017

Great addition just recently published by the great Tom Moore from the not less good Mineralogical Record in the excellent What’s New in the Mineral World? section which time to time referencing on line the novelties that appear in the different web pages as well as in the mineral Shows.

As you will see below the Tom's text is very instructive. It will be one of my guides during my stay in Tucson!

Here you have this so helpful mini-guide published in the bottom of the What’s New in the Mineral World? - Report #45

PostPosted: Jan 14, 2017 16:08    Post subject: New - Crocoite with Dundasite and two excellent cerussites  

Adam Wright and Erika Aheimer arrived in Tucson today and unpacked the new Adelaide Mine crocoite shipment for the 2017 Tucson Show. The new item this year is wonderful crocoite with dundasite from the "under the red river" zone. It appears to be a one time find and was hit on October 12, 2016 in time to be collected, cleaned and mounted for shipment for this year's show. Some photos follow.

Also found this year were two excellent cerussite specimen - delicate and complete. An amazing collecting success to get these out. Photos follow.

Enjoy,

bob

here's a better photo of that large crocoite with dundasite specimen - this is from the Adelaide Mine web site - much better than I could do.

PostPosted: Jan 23, 2017 20:46    Post subject: More to be aware of  

I spent much of today at the HTCC - in setup mode right now but maybe a dozen rooms are open - and there's already some fakes running around.

- there are some "thompsonites on stilbites" which Hemant Merchant assures me are in reality oiled mesolites.
- he also said to beware of any deccan stalagtites - many have been found to be manufactured - glued or epoxied so professionally that even he was fooled.
- there are golden marcasite nodules from Madagascar that are indeed complete marcasite nodules, but the color is chemically induced.

I have a photo of the marcasite and plan to post the others - and maybe more - tomorrow.
