Rum Jungle

In this section of our mineral web shop, you will find minerals from the region of Rum Jungle in the Northern Territory of Australia. This famous mineral locality has produced over the years beautiful specimens of Pyromorphite, " velvet " Malachite, Azurite, Cerussite and Wulfenite among others.

In 1871, a bullock wagon delivering barrels of rum to construction gangs became bogged in jungle terrain near the headwaters of the Finniss River, 65 km south of what is now Darwin, the capital of the Northern Territory. The crew unhooked the bullocks from the wagon and after becoming thirsty in the Top End heat, proceeded to drink the wagon-load of rum in a week-long party until they were rescued. The area then became known as "Rum Jungle".¹
