Hello, Don. Congratulations.

This is a very good, large, gemmy, smokey and double-terminated (hard to find!) Tessin crystal. I like it very much.

Warm greetings.
Sante

Hello Sante,

Thank you so much for your nice words about the Tessin Quartz. I apologize for the poor pictures. It seems that my photography skills are getting worse (or perhaps my eyesight or both). I am very fortunate to have this piece.

I am enjoying very much the thread you started on mining objects...and what a great response from the FMF community.

Stay safe.

Best wishes,

Don

A strong Easter storm hit our area knocking out electricity and blowing down large trees and on to power lines and homes. No power, no wifi, no tv.

Hi, Don.

I like that lemon candy! Pleasing color and sharp crystals.
I'm sorry for the annoyances of the Easter storm. I hope you all are well.

Best greetings from the warm Tuscan spring.

Stay safe.

Hello Tobi,

I am happy to hear from you and value your appreciation of the macle twin Cassiterite crystal. "The Dark Lord." sounds about right or even "Lord Darth." ;-)

Thank you for writing and stay safe,

Regards,

Don

But Don, as soon as your cassiterite starts building space warships or tries to build an army of orcs - please put it in a box ;-)

Stay safe too & best regards
