Brucite - Killa Saifullah District, Balochistan, Pakistan.jpg
 Mineral: Brucite
 Locality:
Killa Saifullah District, Balochistan (Baluchistan), Pakistan
 Dimensions: 4.5 x 5.8 cm
 Description:
There was a plentiful supply of these lemon yellow brucites at the show, and prices were all over the map. Many were quite inexpensive compared to when they first appeared. Sometimes it pays to wait. This one has no point of attachment and immediately caught my eye.

2561 Goethite ps. pyrite - Matacana Mine, Mun. de Gachala, Cundinamarca Dept.., Colombia.jpg
 Mineral: Goethite ps. Pyrite
 Locality:
Gachalá mining district, Matecaña Mine, Municipio Gachalá, Eastern Emerald Belt, Cundinamarca, Colombia
 Dimensions: 3.0 x 3.4 x 3.6 cm
 Description:
Two intergrown pyritohedrons forming an "iron cross" twin. Cubic pseudos of goethite after pyrite are ubiquitous and pretty common, but this is the first time I have seen twinned crystals like this. This specimen was acquired at the recent Denver Show - some of these reached the size of a tennis ball and were quite striking.

As a youth, The Government Pit was my first field collecting trip to the Whites, Mike. Nice pieces.

Thanks Vic. I was able to collect at many New England localities as a kid, but never made it to Government Pit. These pieces were collected by Ernie Schlichter, who collected there often.
