Steve Sorrell

is creating Mineral Publications, Photos and Artwork
Hi there! Thanks for visiting. I'm Steve and I'm a mineral enthusiast living in Australia. I love minerals! I love to appreciate them, learn more about them, share what I've learnt about them, photograph them and even draw or paint pictures of them.

My goals are to produce a regular mineral newsletter, the "Monthly Mineral Chronicles", and target one or two larger publications per year, focusing on a particular locality, or a group of minerals.

A full year (12 issues!) of "Monthly Mineral Chronicles" have now been published. The first larger publication has now also been published!

  • A feeling of satisfaction from being part of a creative team! 
  • Free electronic publications
  • Learning more about minerals
  • Access to the Mineral of the Week posts
  • Stunning mineral photography
  • Tips and tricks in photographing minerals
  • Original artwork

  • And much, much more
