Thank you very much, Tobi. You're always very kind.
In fact, we were lucky in Tuscany with gypsum.
Although a common species, here it has produced crystals of considerable size and different shapes.
I take this opportunity for a roundup. I hope you like it.

Warm greetings.
Sante

Impressive specimens as usual. I must confess (though Italy is not far away from Germany and I thought I knew a lot about European minerals) that I didn't know of all these treasures in Tuscany. I'm more and more impressed by your collection, simply incredible!

Stay safe & keep up the good work!

Thanks again, Tobi. I'm glad you find these Italian minerals interesting.
Italian mineralogy is generally under represented, therefore on this Forum I preferred to give it priority over minerals from all over the world, however present in my collection in a significant way. I think it was the right choice.

Thank you, Philippe. I appreciated very much your compliment.
As for the Italian ilvaite, don't forget that its type locality is Elba island ("ILVA" was its ancient Latin name).

These calcites come from different quarries, but all show a vivid yellow fluorescence and a nice luminescence.

Warm greetings.
Sante

Indeed it WAS the right choice! As Philippe said, your collection is educational, I really learn a lot about Italian minerals, especially from Tuscany; I never had an idea how much wonderful minerals that part of Italy has. My favourite among the recent ones is that 20 x 14 cm calcite from Roselle, it looks like a coral, crazy and stunning piece!

I hope we will see a lot more, reading your mineralogical trip through Italy has become an educational every day lecture during the last months :-)

Once you have finished this journey, I hope to see specimens from your world-wide collection!

Regards
Tobi

Thank you, Tobi. You are very kind.

As for my world-wide minerals, I'd like to show them but I don't know if the time I have left to live will be enough.

To date I've just posted 5% of my collection and I'm living my 75th year. The bill is done...

Also, I don't have a photographic archive of my specimens and day by day I have to take photos (with my mobile!) of the minerals that I share. And this time, although pleasant and rewarding, is taken away from other activities important for my age. Anyway, I'll get an idea.
Receive my best greetings and take care.

Some specimens more from Tuscany.

Warm greetings.
Sante

Hello, Tobi. Thank you for your kind words.
My answer to your questions was rightly moved by the Administrators to a new thread (which I'm sincerely ashamed of): "A collection from Tuscany".
A warm greeting.

Unlike Sardinia, Tuscany is not rich in baryte. Here are some examples of what can be found in theTuscan collections.

Best regards.
Sante
