Photo obituary for the Arizona mineral museum

Mindat.org is the largest mineral database and mineralogy reference website on the internet. This site contains worldwide data on minerals, mineral collecting, mineral localities and other mineralogical data. (quoted from homepage)

A  recent (November 18, 2012) post provides a partial photo documentary of the once top rated Arizona mineral museum:  http://www.mindat.org/article.php/1599/Arizona+Mineral+Museum%2C+Phoenix%2C+Arizona

Where are these beautiful mineral specimens now?

  1. It makes one heart sick to see these beautiful minerals that are tucked away somewhere in storage. But on the bright side, our governor, who made the great decision to close the museum, wears a beautiful amethyst ring. She can tell you she knows what amethyst is and she has a nice piece of jewelry made from it.
