Item #10565 $ 750.00
Quartz over Chrysocolla
Majestic Mines, Milford, Utah

Mr. H.B. Goodenough of New Britain, Connecticut shows up in the Naturalist's Directory of 1895. The directory says it contains "the names, addresses, special departments of study, etc., of professional and amateur naturalists, chemists, physicists, astronomers, etc., etc." Now there is a club I would like to join! I also found a reference in an old Connecticut newspaper stating that Mr. Goodenough traveled to Utah in 1895 to visit the mines in the area: presumably this piece came from that trip. It is a nice large hand / small cabinet specimen measuring 8.5 x 8 x 7.5 cm. Comes with the original label if you ask kindly...
