All proceeds from the sale of these items will be donated to the Bushfire Emergency Wildlife Fund at the Healesville Sanctuary in Victoria, Australia. I lived in Australia for three years as a child and have good memories of visits to this wildlife sanctuary. It seems appropriate to feature specimens of crocoite, a bright red mineral from Tasmania, Australia. The photo of me was taken back when it was deemed okay to cuddle a koala. If you would like more information about the fund or to donate directly, please visit www.zoo.org.au/fire-fund/ or click on the Fund image.
*** I am so appreciative of the response! Thank you! I have sent in the first amalgamated donation, nearly AU$200! Click here to read my update email from the fund on how the money is being used.
