What a beautiful piece, your photographs are great, if you have more species of Trimouns show them, surely we will enjoy a lot.

I've been meaning to ask this of Frederic - how do you clean the specimens to avoid dust particles? every time I take a photo there are numerous dust particles - even after rinsing and drying then blowing off.

thanks,
bob

thanks Frederic - I will try some of these - I hesitate using water spray and air jet on minerals like aurichalcite and of course camerolaite - can you suggest a "scrubbing cream"? I have found that a cleaner called "simple green" can do wonders for specimens.

thanks,
bob
