Lovely. That kind of variety reminds me of some of the rosettes that occur at the
Gouverneur Talc Company #4 quarry, Harrisville, NY. Great variety- great micromounts
and thumbnails of graphite in/on calcite.

I found this giant 3-3/4 inch spinel today. Its sitting next to a bigger one but its more crude. These giants made Amity famous over 150 years ago and they are still here.

Glen this is really cool. You must have enjoyed finding it. For me, finding something and being the first person to see it is so fun! Amity is full of unique minerals and is a beautiful place just to visit.

At first I thought they were graphite spheres with unusual facets but they turned out to be a new mineral for Amity, Geikielite a fairly uncommon mineral in the ilmenite family. They are small but very cool looking under a microscope

Some new finds from amity NY
These are most likely Fluoro-Pargasite crystals from a new pocket.

The color is great on these pargasite crystals but the nice blue coating disappears when I clean them.
Thanks John.....

Beautiful, thanks for the new photos :)

What do you do with all the crystalls you dig up? As I see you have been working the area for more than 3 years now and that place seemed to be an endless source of great specimens.

Did you donate pieces to museums? Or did you sell most of them?

Mark, I've given pieces to a half dozen museums and a few are on display at the New York Museum in Albany. I have more than I need and might try and trade some stuff.
