DIMENSIONS

The Mt Biggenden deposit was discovered in 1890 and mined primarily for gold over a 10 year period. In 1966, open cut mining operations began for Magnetite. During this period until 1999, miners were given permission to offer mineral specimens to the public free or for sale.

The presented mineral specimen represents a classic combination of Quartz on Magnetite from Biggenden. The attractive display face reveals a 6cm Quartz crystal atop clusters of deep silver Magnetite octahedrons. These are accentuated by interlocking quartz points with potentially two re-healed quartz points as shown in the third photo. 

Over-all, this is a strong, well balanced and captivating specimen from an Australian mining area with a rich history.
