Gail

I am always impressed with the depth of your mineral collection. World Class Minerals by any yard stick, and the sort of minerals all collectors should aspire to own. I think when collectors talk about minerals your specimens are the ones by which others should judge their own.

I saw a few impressive Bournonites at the Collector’s Edge, and I believe you purchased one of the larger pieces before the Tucson show.

Could you upload some more pictures of the specimen? I am thinking about buying one from the find too, but all those I have so far seen come with a few dents and dings and minor cracks. Your specimen seems to be one of the exceptions as far as damage is concerned.
