Michael you have a wonderful collection represented here. I especially enjoyed the Beryl var. heliodor from Volodarsk-Volynsk and the Sicilian sulfur (since childhood I have always liked those sulfur specimens).

The Volodarsk-Volynsk locality was one of the first few specimens I obtained in my early teens in the 2000's and they still bring back memories from my trips to Ukraine.

Thanks Michael, I also wanted to mention that I like your crystallized native copper. I tried editing my post but received a message stating that only moderators can edit the message.

The Michigan crystallized coppers and the native copper branch are great examples of that. I commonly see native sheet copper being offered but it's rare to see crystallized examples especially in miniature or cabinet sizes.

I am still looking over your topic so I will report back if I find anything else that catches my eye.

Thanks Pierre. Yes, I think a clay mineral such as kaolin or dickite is a good possibility. I'm still working on trying to find more specific information on the locality.

Michael,

I like your Jeffrey Quartz, jpg.1941. When the specimen is a "floater", they are sometimes referred to as "haystack" around here.

As an Arkansas collector, do you know anything about the location listed for 0885 Quartz 2.jpg? The only information listed on the label was White Phantom Claim, Arkansas. I think it may be in Pulaski County, but not sure of this.

Michael,

I spoke to a geologist today about the White Phantom. He told me that it is located in Saline County, Arkansas, and that it was under private contract with the United States Forest Service. Saline County is just south and west of Pulaski County.

Merry Christmas to you and Laura.

Regards,

Don
