Thank you Fiebre Verde.

Something different; a combo specimen of cassiterite, quartz, arsenopyrite, and a mica.

The supposed locality is Liyang, Hunan. On Mindat Liyang County is in JIANGSU province and not HUNAN. I do not see any cassiterite in the Liyang County occurences, so it is a mystery for me.

These Casiterites are from the Amo deposit, I already added this locality to your images.

In case of doubts better submit it first in the What is it? - Where is it from? section.

Thank you!

I like the contrast with the white rhombs in the Sweetwater galena. Seems to be dolomite?

Thank you Gerard. It is a very humble specimen in fact.

When I bought it, the vendor mentioned calcite, but it may be dolomite.
Association of calcite and galena is common in Viburnum Trend as far I know.
Maybe a US specialist could confirm it.

I see that someone changed my comment to dolomite. But who ?
It would be kind to ask to me if I agree.

I did it (...."fixed") the same as I added the right locality to your Chinese Cassiterite. It is obviously Dolomite, classic in this deposit.

OK, I see.....
Thank you for the confirmation that it is dolomite.

Jordi, I just discover that other changes were done before (from the same process I guess) on other pictures with "Fixed"
Thank you for the corrections, it was not so obvious for me (sorry for my poor knowledge).

Regards.

A pleasure Philippe, thanks for the understanding.

BTW, please take a look in the reference thread: How does "Collection Photos" work?, specially the last post: https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewtopic.php?p=46825#46825 There you have all details about how work the "Collection Photos" section.
For example: please remember capitalize ("Majuscules" in french language) the first letter of each mineral species in the box:

"Mineral (only use names of IMA
species)
"

Thank you so much!

Because of their lack of structuring, these cavities seem to be more related to dissolution than rapid growth.
