Description

ILLUSTRATED!! You are bidding on a small, rich sample with nice crystals of brazilianite on matrix from this old NH locality. This is an incredible example from the locality and was collected by Gunnar Bjareby, probably sometime in the 1950s. The sample was illustrated in the Photo Atlas of Minerals 2007. Comes with 3 original slides taken by Dan and the original collection index card. 

This sample is from the collection of Dan Behnke, long-time friend, micromounter and prodigious photographer. I am pleased to be able to offer selections from his large collection, many of which are illustrated specimens in Rocks & Minerals, The Mineralogiocal Record, Photo Atlas of Minerals and many other publications. All samples from his meticulously catalogued collection will come with his original index card with all notes, photography annotations and other pertinent information, as well as any slides Dan may have taken of the sample with publication notes and date the photo was made.
