In March I was invited out to Dallas to film the Hoppel Collection. Using a technique I pioneered for filming minerals, I was able to capture these incredible pieces and I'd like to share them with the mineral world.

Once you get to a video you'd like to see, click the PLAY button and then click the gear button at the bottom of the video window. Choose 720p(HD) and the video will play back in the highest resolution.

Incredible Bryan! In some cases it seems that you can take the minerals from the computer screen (I wish ;-) The specimens are also amazing. Thank you very much for sharing with us.

Thank you Tobi and Juan.

It's such a privilege to be able to shoot these that I feel compelled to share. I have so many others that I've been shooting over the years and hope to get the permission of all the owners to post them online.

Outside of seeing the specimens in person, I don't think there's a better way to display these. ESPECIALLY for the people who don't have the opportunity to visit all the big shows, this is the next best thing.

Thank you for your encouragement.

I completely agree with you. It´s the best way that I have seen to display specimens not in person. The only thing that I want to tell you is that it would be interesting to add the dimensions of the specimens, for example in the down-left corner or at the beginning with the text of the locality.

And please show us more specimens!

Thank you very much.
