We have contacted Don to explain him how to post correctly -in one thread- his collection pictures. Obviously, it is not necessary to open several threads, each one for only one shot.

Hi Don,

Curious and nice quartz. Some crystals seem a sand clock.

Congratulations!

Hi Don. Thank you for doing the trouble to post that close ups. Fascinating! I am always intrigued by how quartz forms; in this case, very unusual.
