Canadian Specimens, Various Localities

Canada is rich with geological diversity and, as a result, is one of the premier mining countries in the world. From coast to coast, hundreds of operating mines and quarries plus, probably thousands of abandoned mines, quarries and prospects provide an abundance of great mineral specimens. Here are some really nice specimens that i don't have enough of to have their own catagory.
