Micros from me, as usual... It's not because I have nothing other than micros, it's just that I have much better equipment for imaging through the microscope than I do for imaging larger specimens!

According to Geary Murdock this piece was in the Ed McDole collection. Geary was from Idaho and was the person that brought out a lot of material from the Sawthooth Mtns in the 1980's. And I have had this in my collection since 1984.

Hi Everybody,

I am surprised that we have not seen Pectolite yet. So I am going to submit my meagar specimen along with the ugliest Zincite, Franklinite, Willemite example ever seen.

See ya later

jimp



Pectolite 02e.JPG
 Description:
Here then is my Pectolite from Paterson, Passaic County, New Jersey. The specimen is 1 1/2" x 1" (3.81 x 2.54 cm)
 Viewed:  29888 Time(s)

Pectolite 02e.JPG



Zincite 01a.jpg
 Description:
Here's my combination piece of Zincite, Franklinite and Willemite from Franklin, Sussex County, New Jersey. When I recieved this, many years ago it added three new minerals to my collection at a very reasonable price, obviously. the specimen is 5 3/4" x 3 3/4" (14.61 x 9.53 cm). It is in keeping with my aesthetically challenged type locality specimens. And, yes, it would make a good door stop, but it is not.
