Micromount Section

A Special GMS Group
for People Interested in Micromounting

"Come and explore the micro world with us!"

Micromount Section Meets
Fourth Wednesday
Every Month

Many of the most well-formed and beautiful crystals must be viewed with the aid of magnification. Furthermore, many mineral species only form in microscopic crystals. The process of preparing a specimen for viewing and viewing and photographing micro-mineral specimens is a distinct area of mineral collecting called "micromounting".

Join us each month as we explore different aspects of the micromounting hobby: making micromounts, magnifiers and microscopes, photographing micro-minerals, and identifying micro-minerals. Our monthly meetings alternate between workshops to discuss micromounting techniques and talks by leading micromount collectors sharing information about their favorite micro-mineral site.

Date: Wednesday, May 22, 2024
Social Time: 7:00 PM Eastern
Meeting Time: 7:30 PM Eastern
Speaker: Wayne Geller
Topic: Copper-Lead-Zinc mineralization in Audubon, Pennsylvania
Link: The Zoom link is on the GMS calendar here for the link

Wayne Geller, a member of the Leidy Microscopical Society will share his knowledge about the copper-lead-zinc mineralization around the Audubon, Pennsylvania area. This area has a long history of producing, not only copper, lead, and zinc, but also many fine micro-minerals. Although these mines have been closed for more than a hundred years, mineral collectors still find interesting minerals on the mine dumps.
