On the Spanish side of FMF a few months ago we managed to get certain sections (two at this time) of the Spanish FMF to be admitted by the International Standard Serial Number reason why everything we upload in those two sections Yacimientos Minerales en FMF and Ciencias de la Tierra automatically has a common registration number at the ISSN and therefore acts like any other magazine or book published, with the same legal rights and corresponding indexing.

As its name indicates the ISSN is an international registry, so, it covers publications not only in Spanish but also in, for example, English. 😏....

From now on, any quality and well-structured work can be reviewed by the administrators and if we believe that it helps to improve the mineral world, we will publish it in Yacimientos Minerales en FMF or in Ciencias de la Tierra and will thereby become an "ISSN publication"



Thanks for your contribution Duncan (and Joanna). You already are in our ISSN via the Spanish section per: La mina Blue Lace Agate / Blue Lace Agate from Ysterputs, Southern Namibia - (119)


For the past 50 years the Blue Lace Agate Mine in southern Namibia produced hundreds of kilograms of lapidary material and a small assortment of aesthetic mineral specimens. This article describes the regional and local geology, the mineralogical nature of the blue lace agate itself, and illustrates the variety of associated minerals, which include ankerite, calcite, dolomite, gypsum, quartz, siderite, and rare cubic chalcedony pseudomorphs.

This type of 'magazine’ display that we often use in this section does not allow photos to be enlarged by clicking the mouse over them. The solution to enlarge the screen is to use the keys: Ctrl + mouse wheel. By turning the wheel and holding the Ctrl (Control) key we can enlarge the image at will.

PostPosted: Mar 02, 2022 07:32    Post subject: Are there any other blue agate deposits in southern Namibia?  

We publish an extension of the article in this thread in which Jo Wicht, of the Cape Town Gem & Mineral Club, reviews other localities where blue agate occurs near Ysterputs in southern Namibia. Same article has also appeared in the Club's most recent monthly newsletter, which can be downloaded in full here.

Thanks again for your contribution Joanna.
