A bunch of "Meißelspat" baryte from famous Clara Mine in Black Forest. Has some small dings, but is nevertheless an interesting and impressive specimen: While most of such barytes are simply grey or brown, this one changes from blue at the bottom to red on the crystal top.

Trying to improve my skills in mineral photography, i will continue from time to time with close-ups of specimens. Here's one of a smoky quartz on feldspar from Namibia
http://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewtopic.php?p=20210#20210)

BTW: Could anyone please correct the locality in the old post to the one given here? I got the information on Mindat that the exact locality is not known and thus can't be certainly allocated to a farm there.

Thanks!


Locality corrected.
