Newly Listed Minerals - August 10 Mineral Update


MINERALS FROM THE COLLECTION OF PROF. MARTIN BECKER

The minerals below were collected in 1990s by Prof. Martin Becker, geology professor and author of Recent Mineral Finds at the Millington Quarry in Rocks and Minerals v.73 #5 (1998). Becker was a prolific field collector and these were set aside for his private collection for the last 25 years. Each mineral specimen that he saved for his collection was noteworthy for either unique associations, or unusually large size of crystals, or overall large size. The locations represented here are all closed and no new specimens will be available again, except from old collections.

NOTE: large mineral specimens were uncommon from NJ basalt quarries. The minerals formed in gas cavities that rarely exceeded 20 cm, so extracting a large specimen intact was rare. Several of these minerals are unusually large.
