Hello Everyone,

There are some nice specimens on this post, my favorite to this point is the Adamite. Antonio you beat me to the draw on the Magnetite, I have a very similar specimen.

Well here are some more species from Utah.

Here is some Austinite from the type locality at Gold Hill Mine, Gold Hill District, Deep Creek Mountains, Tooele County, Utah. The field of view is 1.0" (2.54cm). Don't pay any attention to the little cotton fiber, I obviously didn't.

It seems to me that if Utah is known for anything (mineralogically, at least), it's for red beryl. This one, modest though it is, is the one we could afford.

A couple of Dugway, Utah (Juab County) geodes. The locality is somewhat in the "outback", and was open a couple of years ago. If one stays until darkness with a UV light, many green-fluorescing (SW) geode pieces can be found. Generally, the chalcedony ones fluoresce best (from slight uranium content I understand). I'll also add an odd pseudo from the Thomas range mountains (near Dugway).
