I was at the Natural History Museum, London last Thursday - and found a very large and very quiet mineral collection - and set out to find two things - hematite and concretions...

Concretions




Hematite






Mars Meteorite


The variety and beauty of some of the items in the collection at the NH museum is just astonishing - I intend a repeat visit when I get the chance to hunt down Goetite and Olivine, but I left the place thinking, if you had the polishing tools and a small drill, you could make a lovely necklace out of Meridiani Blueberries smile.gif
