SELWYNITE – HEATHCOTE VIC – SOLD

For sale is a selwynite, from Heathcote, Vic. This mineral has an interesting history, particularly the naming, today. These specimen was discovered well over 120 years ago, and were given the name selwynite at that time, the name of these distinctive specimens was used in Australia for about one hundred years. About 20 years ago the Mineral Naming board, decided to call another mineral, selwynite. The fact that the old and new minerals were found only about 100klm apart, in my opinion makes for confusion.
