Thank you Benj. The color of these covellites from the Summitville Miine is quite different from the covellite specimens from other locations.

Hi Michael, what is the white near the termination point of the Oklahoma quartz? Is it inclusions or on the surface?

Hi Pierre,

Actually the white is a reflection of the rhombohedral faces on the back side of the crystal. I should try for a better photo in the future.

Hi Michael, nothing wrong with the picture. I am talking about the white spots near the point.

Hi Pierre,

Oh, those spots! I really hadn't noticed them until you mentioned them. They are not visible when looking at the actual specimen in the hand unless the light is just right. So I looked at the piece closely this morning, and even examined it under a microscope. The spots are definitely on the surface. Probably left over residue from the oxalic acid bath.

Michael,

How did you get the sugar to coat this Mimetite so uniformly? ;-)
