Thank you, Tobi. I appreciate your comment very much. This is a picture of a specimen in my collection that I took for a presentation in Tucson in 2015. I think it exhibits good color and parallel crystal growth.

Regards,

Don

And again some true museum pieces, Don, both the heliodor and the rhodochrosite are outstanding. There are not many collectors who own a 21 cm specimen of Oppu Mine Rhodo. Simply incredible.

Tobi,

Thank you so much for your compliments. Pictures of both of these specimens from my collection were included in my presentation. I am very fortunate to have them.

Best wishes,

Don

And again a museum piece of superb quality AND size. The massive form, the perfect terminations, the different colour zones and the transparency make it an incredibly great crystal of spodumene, to me one of the best I've ever seen!
