Minerals from Norway 2
We have added 16 more fine specimens from Norway. Many of these are rarely available outside of Norway, and are quite fine examples. There are classic garnet specimens from several localities, 6 fine Anatase specimens from a well-documented locality, Zircon from Sieland, Hydroxylapatite from Snarum, and a nice Emerald from the Byrud emerald mine. Also included are rarities like Prehnite, native Copper, Lepidolite, and Epidote -- many of these localities are never seen for sale. The localities are exactly correct, as I got these from some friends who are prolific field collectors with the contacts in Norway to ensure access.
