Product Description

For sale is an outstanding group of magnetite crystals with minor calcite from Bumberry Mine, Murga, NSW. This location is so uncommon it is not listed even on Mindat. In my humble opinion this is one of the finest magnetite specimen that has ever come out of NSW.  The Bumberry mine, was worked in the early part of last century, and the magnetite skarn deposit, was again investigated in the Endeavour series of prospect in the mid 1970s, this actually was the first prospect examined, and given the new name Endeavour 1 (E1). Outstanding magnetite specimen, with sharp well formed crystals, with the small amount of white calcite giving it all a great highlight. Please note the calcite has NOT been acid etched. The black magnetite crystals sit on massive magnetite. This come from a very old NSW collection. Comes with the original old label.
