Hello, I just visited the Seaman Museum while on a trip to immerse myself in the culture of the Keweenaw Peninsula.

It was profound to say the least, and basically messed with my emotions. The impression on me is so significant that I have to ask if the minerals themselves are capable of affecting people. That sounds hokey, but at the point the impossible seems probable.

To put it in perspective there are two examples that best describe the impact. The first is the spell of the Arkenstone on Thorin in The Hobbit. However, picture Thorin newly discovering a cavern filled with a thousand equally powerful Arkenstones.
The second example is an alternate version of my own experience of seeing my wife for the first time. However it would have been the bewildering experience of walking in to a convention of a couple thousand women who look exactly like my wife.

I have to cite both of these scenarios as I really felt some weird mixture of love and lust. This is definitely one of the most significant experiences of my life. On top of it all, I am not a mineral enthusiast. This is the first mineral exhibit I have ever seen.

Here is something pretty special in the museum's collection that was acquired recently- a twinned diamond crystal from the Diavik Mine, Lac de Gras, Northwest Territories, Canada. The individual crystals are of the "cavernous" or "re-entrant" cubic habit more commonly known from Botswana. The crystal is currently on display in the museum for all to enjoy.

 Mineral: Diamond
 Locality:
El Bonanza Mine, Port Radium District, Great Bear Lake, Mackenzie District, Northwest Territories, Canada
 Dimensions: 10.5x10x6 mm
 Description:
This twinned crystal is 2.71 ct.

This crystal also fluoresces bright yellow in long wave ultraviolet light. Unfortunately the camera sensor picks up purple reflections that are not visible to the eye.

Here is a smaller (~2.5 mm) un-twinned re-entrant diamond crystal that the museum has had for many years. It is from the Donald C. Gabriel collection, and is reportedly from Kasai Province, Democratic Republic of Congo. Gabriel acquired this and a few other diamond crystals from Sidney Krandell in 1943.

That huge copper slab has a patina and prominent parallel grooves on one side (clearly seen in the "Precise" photo showing the slab about to be hoisted into place). Being a Pleistocene geologist, I wonder if they're glacial grooves (value added!!) ? Or maybe slickensides?

Some sheets of copper from the Nonesuch shale from the White Pine mine that may be slickensides, but the large pieces of float copper which show prominent grooves in them are most likely from glacial action.

Thanks, George! Few mineral "specimens" of any size survive the glacial grinding mill. The glacial markings really do add a lot of interest to this already remarkable copper.

Great mineral museum. I have been in Houghton on recruiting trips about 2 X yearly for last several years & try to visit each time. Good to see what's new as well as old favorites.

Associate Curator Christopher Stefano assembled a case of great minerals donated to the museum by Paul and Janet Clifford (Cleveland, Ohio) to display this year in Tucson. I have known Paul and Janet since about 1980. Sorry they couldn't make it to Tucson this year. We appreciate their support.

Hi John,

Thanks for posting the specimens that the Clifford's donated! I know both of them through our club in Cleveland, Ohio.

I will let them know that you posted a picture of some of their specimens, I think they would appreciate it. I would like to see more of their collection if you have some spare time. They have an outstanding collection.

Congratulations to Bruce Cairncross on his fine Connoisseur's Choice article on Shigaite in the March/April 2016 issue of Rocks and Minerals. A few specimens of Shigaite and associated minerals from Michigan's iron district, which are in the museum's collection, were featured. Here are a few photos of specimens in the article and a few extras.

Absolutely, a great job from Bruce! Congratulations to him as well as the Seaman Museum to own so fine specimens.
Here is the article (partial content, full article only for subscribers of the fine Rocks&Minerals magazine) -> Connoisseur's Choice: Shigaite, Kalahari Manganese Field, Northern Cape Province, South Africa

BTW, thanks also to John Jaszczak to publish here the photos as well as always share news from the A. E. Seaman Mineral Museum with the mineralogical community.

Sulfides from Merelani tanzanite district, Tanzania.
The Mineralogical Record published a paper on “Spectacular sulfides from the Merelani tanzanite deposit, Lelatema Mountains [S. Harrison, et. al. 45, 553-570 (2014).] that featured some specimens in the museum's collection.
We featured our wurtzite earlier on these pages

Here a a few more specimens from the article.

The size and quality of the alabandite crystals from Merelani were quite a surprise to find. In addition, they have a variety of associated species, including chalcopyrite, tennantite-tetrahedrite, stilbite, rhodochrosite, clausthalite, millerite, wurtzite, tanzanite, diopside, calcite, graphite, laumontite, tremolite, pyrite, chabazite-Ca, and more.
