For the start of a new year, one full of hope(!), we have a new look. This month, in this 58 page full-colour issue, we have the following articles: * Cutting Cabochon Days, Rolf Luetcke. Rolf takes us back to the days when he used to cut and polish cabochons. * Mineral Snippet – Hellyerite * Collector’s Guide to the Minerals of Lake Boga Part 6, Steve Sorrell. This part of the Lake Boga series looks at the remaining copper species. * Widmanstätten Structures, Noel Kennon. Ever wondered about those odd markings on some cut faces on meteorites? Noel digs into these patterns. * The Ironclad Mine – Farmcote Station, Broken Hill District, New South Wales, Trevor Dart. Trevor describes the interesting mineralogy of this lesser-known silver mine near Broken Hill.
