Wonderful specimens, especially the amethysts from Mexico and the many rhodochrosites! My personal favourite is the 15 cm amethyst "bowtie":
https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/download.php?id=49044 - what a stunning piece!

Please keep on posting.

Mike,

The quality of both the photography and specimens are absolutely stunning. I particularly enjoyed the Japanese rhodochrosite https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/download.php?id=49075 (TakaBL.jpg) and the Japanese quartz https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/download.php?id=49203 (QtzTwinJpn.jpg), really nice! Thank you for sharing your photographs.

I think your stibnite and baryte combination https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/download.php?id=49417 (MeikleBaryte3.jpg), may actaully be from the Murray Mine, Independence Mountains District, Elko Co., Nevada and not the Meikle Mine. Another oddity from the Murray Mine is that some of the barytes have a coating of quartz crystals.

I have never seen a stibnite/baryte from the Meikle Mine, but it doesn't mean that one cannot exist.

Mike, I agree. Definitely Murray Mine. --Bob

That Berbes specimen really took my breath: https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/download.php?id=49547

Maybe "only" a small fluorite from Berbes - but to my eyes one of the most beautiful specimens and one of the best photos i've ever seen!!!
