Australian Museum Minerals Expedition - Cabinets 12 - 14

SpecimensAustralian Museum Mineralogy Collection

The Australian Museum Mineral collection covers 1290 different mineral species. Most come from New South Wales but other Australian and world localities are also represented. Special features are Broken Hill and New England minerals, gemstones, ornamental and carved minerals, zeolites and the world-famous Albert Chapman Collection. The rock collection is mostly from eastern Australia, but includes specimens from all states and many overseas localities. There are also historic specimens from Antarctica collected by Sir Douglas Mawson in the early 1900s.
