PostPosted: Jan 24, 2015 14:12    Post subject: Albert Chapman Collection - The Mexican Dimension - Australian Museum Sydney  

I recently had the opportunity to pass through Sydney and made a quick stop at the Australian Museum near Hyde Park to see their mineral exhibits. This was the second time that I had a look at the Chapman Collection. Fantastic Broken Hill specimens, I saw an outstanding rhodonite, a killer light aqua blue smithsonite on black goethite and more. But the purpose was really to look at the Mexican minerals, which I remembered from my earlier visit in 2005, a killer adamite...still there and more.

All pieces photographed are small cabinet to large cabinet in size.

Thanks for this Jean...brings back memories of two days I spent with Chappie going through his collection. A great example of a man who not only loved minerals but was disciplined enough to only go for the very best.

As a final note, there is an article in the Min Rec vol 19 number 6 of 1988 with a photograph of the killer rhodonite mentioned at the start of the post.
Cheers
