Found this really cool site while surfing last night.
It's an on-line mineral gallery at http://www.galleries.com/default.htm
Contains photo's and discriptions of most of the minerals found today.
Puts a 'face' on alot of the stuff we buy as bags of white powder.
(ie: Wollastonite, Spodumene, Pyrophyllite, etc.)
Now if I could only buy a bag of ground 'Goosecreekite' (Hydrated Calcium
Aluminum Silicate) because it sounds cool or perhaps some
'Cuprosklodowskite' (Hydrated Copper Uranyl Silicate) for that
glow-in-the-dark pot I've always wanted.
'Neat site'!! Go have a peek.
