Many thanks.
Regards.

You are in the "Collection photos and Collector's page" so, as you can see https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewforum.php?f=22 every thread there has the collector's name. Anyway, I already changed the thread's name to:

"Collection of Sante Celiberti - A mineralogical trip through Italy"

BTW, we always strongly request to the FMFers use his own name. Do you want a change of "Etrusco" to "Sante Celiberti"?

Also, please do a careful review at A general guide for using the Forum with some rules and tips and please take a look in your first post: https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewtopic.php?p=68664#68664 . You will see there that I "normalized" everything, so, please use the same style for your next posts.
I will normalize your second post today late.

Thanks for the understanding.

Hello, Mr. Jordi.
Thank you for your time and your help.
The new thread name is ok.
As for my nickname "Etrusco", I'll change it with Sante Celiberti. That's more practical.
As for the correct way to post photos, I'll read again the instructions and I'll try to do my best in the next times.
Kind regards,
Sante Celiberti

Done Sante, your new user name now is "Sante Celiberti". Please remember to use this new user name when you log in. Your password is the same, no change on it.

I apologize, I tried to change my name but I can't.
Strangely I had done the same operation on the spanish Forum and I could.
Would you, please, do it for me when you find time? That's not so urgent.
Thank you again.

Your previous name, Etrusco, had already been changed by Jordi Fabre. Do you still need another change?

Hello.
I post other five mineral photos from five other Italian regions. Although a few regions are missing for lack of interesting specimens, with this post I complete the Italy "presentation tour".
As you have seen, I didn't choose species which you would have expected from some region (sulphur from Sicily, phosgenite (or even better covellite or cadmian-smithsonite) from Sardinia, etc. The time for all this will come.
I'll start with alpine minerals, hoping you enjoy them.
Best regards,
Sante

Hello.

A nice and interesting alpine quartz.

In addition to color, trasparency and iridescence I counted -only on the main crystal- at list 15 extra faces, some more some less visible. Even the minor crystal has extra faces.

I hope you like it.
Best regards.
Sante
