Bertrandite and Secondary Beryllium Minerals
by Bud Poulin
Connecticut is known for its pegmatites (very coarse granites) which contain many rare minerals. Bud Poulin has been collecting in New England for over 45 years. This rare beryllium mineral is one of his favorites. His collection has over 60 specimens, many self collected. The program will be of great interest to collectors of New England minerals.
