Well, actually ALL of your specimens are high quality and your photos are splendid. But I really have to mention how much I enjoy your last posts: The Cruzeiro elbaite and the great fluorite specimen from Pakistan are so extremely beautiful, and you captured their beauty perfectly, I could watch these photos for hours!

Specimens (and photos!) like that are the reason why I love minerals. Congratulations on these great specimens & thanks for your awesome photos :-)

Regards
Tobi

Another very beautiful specimen. I really like the specimens from Messina Mine but I haven't seen one with so many different inclusions. Nice!

This specimen is truly exceptional indeed. Wow!
It is difficult to photograph inclusions of ajoite or papagoite in quartz. That’s my problem anyway.

As usual, superb specimens and photos. The red fluorite seems to glow and I'm really in love with your quartz from Cabiche. I like these new finds with their yellow terminations; and I think your specimen is one of the best I've seen and the photo for sure a masterwork - the specimen is really 3D, wow!

Thanks Tobi! The fluorite with the back-lighting brings out the range of colors and the inclusions. The spherical clusters of quartz is a bit different from most of the specimens from this locality.

Hi.

I think this page 75 might be called "colors in the minerals".

Highly entertaining.

Congratulations.
