  • Torbernite, No. 6 Workings, Mt Painter, Arkaroola, S.A

    SKU: 375

    Size  6cm x 5cm

    Green flaky crystals of torbernite on a chocolate brown matrix,  from the classic Mt Painter locality.  Uranium ores were found here in 1910, and the No 6 workings were the biggest of a handful of small uranium prospects in the surrounding hills. Mining took place on and off until about the 1930's when the mine closed for good. Mine is now inside the Arkaroola sanctuary so no collecting is allowed at all.

    Old speciman from an old collection.
