Beautiful amythest crystals Pierre, shame about the glue. I must say your photo's are extremely clear and well composed. Thanks for taking the trouble to photograph and post these glued specimens.

Best regards,
Mike


Hi Mike. Thank you for the compliment. As you know, my photography method is very simple (straight forward) and with no expensive equipment.
Why some people choose the route of deception rather than hard work will always intrigue me. I am sure this chap could have used his artistic skills to a better use :-)

It appears that my guess for this specimen (P1290780.JPG) was correct, Chrysocolla. Please have a look at this similar specimen https://www.mindat.org/photo-201797.html
