Aboriginal Axe Head

This is the first aboriginal axe John Mackay found during his exploration of Central Queensland in 1967. It was from the Mad Dog Creek region. Most evolutionists would regard this axe as a primitive first attempt compared to the much smoother stone axes we are commonly familiar with. This axe shows no evidence of ever being attached to a handle, and in fact, fits nicely into the hand.

Calcite

Chalix is the Greek word for lime, and it is the origin of our word Calcite. Calcite is very common and is estimated to comprise up to four per cent of the weight of the earth's crust. It is found in all rock types - sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous. Lime rich sediments can be derived from minute algae or shell deposits and even from a water soluble cement that has glued sand together to form sandstone.

Peacock Ore

Peacock Ore is usualloy a colourful mixture of two copper ores. Bornite and Chalcopyrite. Chalcopyrite is one of the minerals referred to as 'Fools Gold.' Common iron pyrite usually traps people with its bright gold colour, but real gold is a more buttery yellow and is far softer and malleable. Chalcopyrite is wide spread and can be a direct grade source of copper. It is made of both copper and iron pyrite and consists of the metal copper as well as iron and sulphur. It is usually a brassy yellow, but on exposure, which is until it becomes a mixture of iridescent blues, greens, yellows and purples, hence named Peacock ore.

Chrysophrase

Chrysophrase is the tenth precious stone mentioned in Revelation 21: 20 as making up the foundation stones of the city wall of the "New Jerusalem". The name chrysophrase comes from the Greek chrysos, meaning golden and prason, meaning the green vegetable leek. In ancient days the term was applied to several yellowish green gemstones, including beryl, but gradually it has come to refer only to the apple-green variety of quartz.. Chrysoprase is a cryptocrystalline variety of quartz (chalcedony) and the green comes from a nickel content of 1 to 3%.

Copper

Native copper is a beautiful thing. As a shiny metal, it has been mined for thousands of years so raw or native copper deposits are almost depleted. These days if you find a piece of elemental copper, it will usually find its way into a collector’s display case. Copper is one of the easiest metals to recognise as it tarnishes from dull to bright greens with a dash of blue. When polished it is a very shiny metal. It is occasionally found in cubic crystals. Like most metals it is easy to beat out into sheets or draw into wires. Pure copper makes a red mark on a white porcelain plate.
