Illuminated Fire tower with mica windows ๐ŸชŸ ๐Ÿ˜

Purchased to be put on exhibit at a Museum in upstate NY!

We are thrilled to have acquired this beautiful replica Adirondack Fire Tower, made by Jeanette Brandt and Mike Parwana, owners of Chicken Coop Forge in Lake Luzerne, NY. Mike had this to say about the piece:

"The truss and stair structure is fabricated steel which we had hot dip galvanized at Hubbell Galvanizing in Utica (New York Mills). The cabin on top is made from roofing tin we salvaged from our own home in Lake Luzerne when we re-roofed several years ago... and the โ€œwindowsโ€ are mica. There is a grounded medium base (standard Edison) porcelain socket inside with an LED bulb. The socket and cord are rated for more wattage than you could ever put in there but we used an LED because it lasts long, uses little energy and wonโ€™t get very hot. This is accessed by a small panel bolted on the bottom of the tower cabin. The piece isnโ€™t intended to be an exact replica of any particular fire tower but is built in proportion to the standard DEC plan. The white powder on the surface is a natural patina of aging zinc, a zinc oxide, which forms on the surface and if left outdoors eventually washes away to the aged galvanized gray you see on old โ€œtin.โ€"


Worn rock-hewn stairs dating back to the 11th century CE, leading to the Sperlinga Castle in Sicily, Italy.

I say the only true rocks are born of Igenous origins, that means molton lava. When liquefied rock cools over time it becomes "Pegmatite"

Pegmatites are where the largest crystals in the world grow . . .

New Hampshire is full of Pegmatite intrusions


Pecora's Mica Mine Schoolhouse had its first sleepover guests Saturday night!
