Microminerals and Social Media

There are a number of ways that you can share photos of your microminerals, or simply enjoy others’ posts, on Social Media. On Facebook, there is the British Micromount Collectors Group (set up for members of the BMS, then opened more widely), The Micromount Club, and Minerals of Slags if that is something you are interested in. If you aren’t that keen on Facebook, there is an alternative in MeWe. On this site, there is a mineral hub with groups set up for Micromounts, Specimen a Day, and Mineral of the Week, amongst others. In the latter, this week’s Mineral of the Week is olivenite, and this specimen from Wheal Gorland in Cornwall is one of the olivenite specimens posted.
