PostPosted: Jul 26, 2012 08:34    Post subject: Canadian Museum of Nature  

Last weekend, July 21, I spend a few hours in the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa in the "Vale Earth Gallery" which hosts the minerals. Of course I focused on Mexican minerals but surely got distracted by other specimens, mainly from Eastern Canada localities. It took me a little bit of time to figure out that one needed to press the screen beside each display, to then see photographs of the specimens and then elect to choose a different screens that will display, either an general introduction with the specimen size, or locality, or interesting facts, or physical properties, or origin of the name. Tonnes of information is available for each specimen, may be too much and not readily available (i.e. locality).

The quality of the photographs is not exceptional (i.e. all taken with my BlackBerry) but they do show the quality and beauty of the specimens.

Mexico goes first followed by Mont St-Hilaire and Jeffrey Mine.

More specimens deserve a mention but I only took so many shots with my BB. The Atacamite from South Australia 5.5 cm standing up, the 12 cm Kermesite from the Globe Phoenix Mine in Zimbabwe, a miniature of acicular vivianite from Bolivia, just to name a few.

Cheers

Jean

Very nice pictures.

Thanks to share them, specially the pictures from Canada; some of them are new for me, living in Spain.

Thanks!!
