General Discussion / Dangerous minerals
« on: October 16, 2018, 10:24:18 AM »
Hi all.  At the 2016 Gemfest I visited the Webbs Consol Silver Mine at Emmaville.  I obtained a lot of samples which I believe include Galena and Arsenopyrite.  I have recently read a list of the 10 most dangerous minerals health wise and they are on the list.  Is it safe to have these samples in a display case in the house?  Up until a few weeks ago, they have been down in the back shed.

I also obtained quite a few samples from the Sunset Mine at Mary Kathleen.  Is there anything there that might be unsafe to display?

Thanks,
Martin.
