Subject: [MSA-talk] Mineral Interest

Oct 20, 2017 Hello Min Nuts: I am 95 years old, have always been interested in people and nature.  As a boy in California I got up early walked to hills observing things, cows, oil wells, rocks.  Had rockhound brothers.  During WWII in China on a stroll I picked up alpha quartz whole crystals sent home.  At UCLA  Professor George Tunell taught me crystal structure among other things.  I worked with UCLA Clem Nelson on Papoose Flat pluton  in which crystals of orthoclase weathered out on ground. They were studied in chosen orientation. I now live in Westerly, Rhode Island. dug into Westerly Granite with moonstone orthoclase therapeutic crystals.  Textures differ.  PPF crystals during growth grew yriad tiny oriented crystals - boxy textures.  Westerly crystals separated close layers imparted sheen.  Frank Dickson
