Thank you very much for your compliment, Pierre. I just found this specimen in an old box while looking for something else which I did not find.

Hi to Riana.

So wonderful, Don! My favourites among the recently posted specimens: The classic German rhodochrosite from Wolf Mine (very well-defined crystals in vivid colour) and the clear Daye calcite (great transparency and impressive crystal size) :-)

Thank you for your comments, Tobi, I appreciate your taking the time to write. Your significant contributions to The FMF in the form of pictures of your collection, collages, and comments have not gone unnoticed and I have enjoyed your posts for years.

Don

Don,

I just love the rhodochrosite from the Osarizawa Mine - excellent. Also, as Tobi indicated, the rhodo from the Wolf Mine is also very special.

Cheers,
Michael
