Hello Pierre,

Thanks. Didn't know whether to call it a Calcite or an Azurite.

All excellent specimens and nice images.

What are the plastic or acrylic disks some are sitting on? Is that just of photography? Did you make them? Are the specimens glued to them?

Thanks Dale.
It's a glass disc that I use just for taking pictures, to get a little elevation.

Heimo,

I like the cuprite in the first image (HH 352.JPG). What is the green mineral? Duftite? Bayldonite?

Thanks Michael,

I am by no means an expert, but I am pretty sure it is Duftite.

Nice specimens Heimo! I fancy HH 131A.JPG (Smithsonite). It is beautiful!

Hi Heimo. I am reasonably happy with my photography, but there is lots of room for improvement. You are not doing too bad for a beginner! :-)

Heimo,

Your red tint wulfenites (HH 832B.JPG) from Tsumeb are pretty cool, I haven’t seen too many examples of those. I also agree with Michael about the duftite and cuprite (HH 352.JPG, page 1) specimen, that is a pretty neat one too.

As dioptase is one of my favorite minerals, I really think the Calcite/Dioptase (HH 338, page 1) is a pretty sweet specimen.
