Some 60 new minerals have been added since our last update, both British and worldwide along with new location photos and updated British mining area information. Specimens from the Bloch collection will be added some time later this year and I will put a page up with information on David & Peggy Bloch and their collection.
This year we are in the process of moving and collecting trips have had to be restricted to one day trips making a visit to Scotland impossible from where we are in the Sheffield area. However the trips to Yorkshire have proved fruitful. Some interesting pyromorphite has turned up (certainly for Yorkshire) along with specimens of witherite, smithsonite and quartz the latter being quite uncommon in Yorkshire.
I shall be having a stand at the remaining Oxford shows in September and December as well as the Bakewell Rock Exchange and Sussex Mineral show. For full details see the show schedule page.
