This one also from same locality as previous Cacoxenite. I entered this specimen in to our local (Milton Keynes Geological Society) annual 'best mineral' Competition - and won it....which meant I had to polish the shield for a year lol!!

Love the photos of the minerals, and more importantly, love the AVATAR!!!!!!

By the way, you can upload many more photos in one posting, just FYI.
