This third post of the 2018 The East Coast Gem, Mineral & Fossil Show (AKA the Springfield Show), continues with the exhibit displays of Dave and Karen DeBruin's mineral collection.
The post features some of the additional Galena and Worldwide Apophyllite cases, varied Quartz displays, and Fluorite from Hardin County, Illinois as well as a case of worldwide Fluorite.
There were several cases from the Montreal Mine, Iron County, Wisconsin. This mine is an unusual iron mine that has produced some exceptional minerals, many of which we'd seen at last year's Tucson show display of the DeBruin's. There was a display of large Calcite crystals from the Sweetwater Mine, Missouri; and Minerals from Shullsburg, Wisconson (Calcite, Marcasite, and Pyrite.)
Amethyst was well-represented in several display cases. There was one case of Amethyst from the Southern United States (North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia), and a case of Mexican Amethyst. There was also an additional display case of exceptional Las Vigas Amethyst.
