Middle Moat Mt., Hale's Location, Carroll Co., New Hampshire, USA
Small Cabinet, 7.4 x 6.9 x 3.9 cm
Ex. Ken Hollmann
I had seen milarite from Brazil, and Switzerland, but not a great one from New Hampshire before I lucked into learning of it from this apparently well-known specimen. It is illustrated in Figure 18, page 294, The New Hampshire issue of Rocks and Minerals - V65 #4. The crystal spray is fully 2 cm, nicely protected in a pocket of feldspar and smoky quartz. Ex. Ken Hollman Collection. A notecard with the piece, apparently from Ken, noted that this was bought from John Oliver, that it was "excellent," and that there is associated fluorite and also an unidentified mineral. He thought it worth noting that the piece had not been "acid cleaned" as well. A true East Coast rarity!
