Re: Specimen ID Help

Hello Doug;

All of the advice so far is good. Another thing you might try is the Mineral Key. There is one version here at the Rock Shop. Scroll down the menu for it. There is an improved version, linked to Mindat photos, at the Mineral Society of America website, It is located in the Collector's Corner.

Those of us here at Bob's enjoy trying to identify specimens in our "virtual laboratory" but we need information. Photos that you post in a photo gallery are a big help. But also critical are properties like hardness, cleavage, luster , etc.

KOR (Keep On Rocking!)
