MUSCOVITE MICA BOOK SPECIMEN

Muscovite Mica Book Specimen.  Featuring many slim sheets of Mica together forming a book.  A top specimen, you can see my reflection in a few of the pics.  This lovely silvery Mineral possesses special properties like electrical, thermal and electromagnetic insulation and shielding.  We have personally measured these properties with a Trifield meter for shielding and Mica is one of the best natural radiation shields.  It has been used scientifically for these purposes for well over a hundred years.  Mica can be flaky and comes apart in thin sheets much like flexible plastic.  It is a popular and unusual mineral that appeals to people of all ages.   Muscovite is just one variety of Mica, named for the Russian province of Muscovy, known for its sheet mica.

Location:
Mount Isa, Queensland, Australia.

Dimensions:
9.4cm x 7.1cm x 1.6cm, 205g.

The Micas are an important group of minerals.  Because thin flakes of mica are generally flexible and brittle, it is surprising how resistant and durable mica crystals can be in withstanding high temperatures and pressures in metamorphic regimes.

Resisting the punishment of erosional environments.  Of course it is a group of minerals and most people who are knowledgeable about minerals know the three most common mica minerals.  Muscovite, Biotite, and Lepidolite and perhaps a few of the less common Micas Glauconite, Paragonite, Phlogopite and Zinnwaldite.  The Mica Group is a rather large group of minerals with over 30 members.
