New Minerals & 2015 Calendar

New Minerals

    We have restocked our mineral cases in the store with some fantastic pieces from around the world!  On display this week we have large pieces of Chalcopyrite.   Chalcopyrite is a Copper Iron Sulfide from Mexico.  The mineral contains colorful flashes of blue, green, yellow, and red.  The beautiful coloring is completely natural.  
     A new shipment of Sparkle Pyrite is also on display.  These octahedral crystals beautifully reflect light and are just dazzling!  Sparkle Pyrite originates in Peru.  The natural ocatahedral crystals form in clusters and are made of iron and sulfur.
