Natural Magnesium Fluoride...

Post by crocoite »

Following on from Walt's post, here is an image of sellaite (naturally occurring magnesium fluoride) from Mt Bischoff Tin Mine, Waratah, Tasmania. Image is about 4mm FOV. The white mineral is an even rarer one (probably ralstonite).

Hmm...nice shot. Looks like quartz and soda (shaken not stirred) :D
