I have already uploaded a few photos to the forum of California USA pegmatite minerals in A mineralogical trip through the states of USA - California, but will also try to add a few specimens here too as time permits me to do so.

Welcome back - very beautiful specimens!
Indeed an unusual specimen from Chumar Bakhoor, I like the "fluorite line" :-)

Thanks, that opal is one of my favorites. I am an opal lover. The blue and green colors swim back and forth like waves in semi-transparent opal. Another specimen for today, this one a Kunzite from southern California and a place very special to me, Hiriart Mountain at Pala (I spent many years on weekends down there when I was growing up).... This pink beauty is an ex Jesse Fisher and Joan Kureczka collection and is in a couple publications including the American Mineral Treasures book, I was lucky to obtain it.

I also love opals, and this was a great figurative way to describe the beauty of this mineral :-)
