Bustamite and Manganoan Hedenbergite, North mine, Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia.
Bustamite is moderately common and occurs in a variety of assemblages, associated with rhodonite and tephroite, calcite and tephroite or glaucochroite and tephroite. Vesuvianite, wollastonite, garnet, diopside, willemite, johannsenite, margarosanite and clinohedrite also may be present.
Bustamite typically results from metamorphism of manganese-bearing sediments.

Linda, it does too. ♥♥♥


It kind of looks like a bunch of sticky candy wadded together! LOL Love it!


John, just a momentary aberration on my part. I'll be back to normal with a few more doses of Health Elixir! :-)))


Wendy, I'm glad you're enjoying them. Still a few more to go yet. ♥♥♥


Nev, you are beginning to worry me. Whenever someone can make sense of my comments I get concerned... I hope tomorrow is a better day for you...


Absolutely love both your theme postings. They are so beautiful. This one looks like it would fall apart.............Wendy


John, you've been reading too many nursery rhymes again. I thought you would have graduated to comics by now! :-)))


Bobbie, the specimen in the picture partially resembles our country of Australia (without Tasmania). ♥♥♥


Janet, I actually recognised one of those names in the info, and you've gone on to mention it in your comment - Wollastonite. When I worked in the Cast House (8 years), I used it occasionally as one of the products in a mix to make 'floats' (stoppers), and sent the finished product to our Queensland Office for a customer near Gladstone (I think). It is a white powder with larger white flecks through it that, when mixed with three different liquids, sets hard very quickly. The process of mixing, and pouring into the moulds all had to be completed in less than 10 minutes. Wollastonite is quite safe to work with, and does not harm the skin. ♥♥♥


Ellen, it looks a bit fragile to me, so we will have to watch how we handle this sample. ♥♥♥


Ardy, I'm finding all the weird ones that nobody's ever heard of (including myself). ♥♥♥


Nev, at first glance I thought this to be the residence of an "old woman"... the old woman who had so many children, she didn't know what to do :-)


Very unusual, interesting one. I like it.☺♥♥


This is a fascinating one thanks Nev, I think you might be making all these names up! Vesuvianite? Wollastonite? Seriously I'm enjoying this series, hugs. ♥♥♥


A beauty for a colection, but it looks like it would be painful to handle.


Thanks, Nev, for introducing another interesting specimen.
