PUTTAPA

 

P4

Most (all?) of the willemite fluoresces and phosphoresces blue under SW, and yellow under MW.

P7

P10

P11

P13

P21

These four little pyramid shaped rocks broke just the way they are when I sledged a larger rock. The field of view of the photo is about 12cm (4.5 in).

P29

This rock may have different minerals to those found in other Puttapa specimens. Fluorescence and phosphorescence under SW & MW are not the same as other Puttapa pieces.

P33

Probably all willemite with a small helping of calcite (fl red).

P37

The smallest specimen on the website. It is only ~~ x ~~ x ~~ mm. The blue is smithsonite, the red probably calcite, the rest unknown.

P38

This little piece is one of my all time favourites. It is only ~~ x ~~ x ~~ mm, but has provided many amazing photos.

P39, P45

Fluorescent fossils from the Ajax (copper) Mine Fossil Field, on a hill a few hundred metres from the Puttapa pit.
