Fieldwork views are my favorite views. Wrapped up the first project on Wednesday. Explored Antelope Island on Thursday and project two is in full swing. First day off tomorrow... boy, have we earned it. #geology #fieldwork #fieldcamp #fieldcamp2019

The communities of Greencastle, Rouskey and Gortin in the foothills of the Sperrin Mountains in Co. Tyrone, are not easily accessible. The services of a local guide are required to get there from the nearby town of Omagh. From Omagh, it’s a 20-30 minute drive. That drive is sufficient to justify why it has official status as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. But in this are of beauty a conflict is underway. A conflict between the local community and Canadian gold mining giant Dalradian Gold Ltd. Local people are not deterred by Dalradian’s size. Click the link in our bio to learn how they will protect their community from environmental destruction. Photo: Facebook page or Photo: Save Our Sperrins Facebook Page.

This very rare combo piece is part of the Hana Jae Collection. A rare Maltese Cross in Fluorite, atop Sphalerite, on a Stellar Beam Calcite Football. This specimen has very minimal (microscopic) damage on one Calcite tip, with the fluorite being pristine. The most amazing bit of info on this stone, is that it was acquired by the 1st Geologist at the Elmwood Mine, in the early 70's, and came from the single pocket that produced these included Fluorite Maltese Cross specimens. Not only is Fluorite on Calcite (different from calcite on fluorite specimens) a rare combo, but add the Maltese cross, and that it was pulled by their 1st geologist... makes this a super rare and important collectors specimen. We do have several more Maltese cross Fluorites to be posted soon, but they don't sit atop a Stellar Beam Football like this guy. #rare #rarecombo #rarespecimen #fluoriteoncalcite #fluorite #calcite #sphalerite #gemming #amazing #crystalsofig #crystalshop #oneofakind #elmwood #maltesecross #geology #geologyrocks #geologist #crystals #jawdropper #happysaturday #havearocknday
