Outstanding and well balanced specimen from China. Good contrast between black and colorless crystals.

Thank you Carles, I consider this specimen a true highlight and another centerpiece of my quartz collection. The contrast is one aspect but this specimen also has the "horizon" - according to Steve Smale - you often told me about. The photo doesn't show this but the attached video gives a good impression of the three-dimensional quality and shape of the specimen. I see many of these where the quartzes are damaged or broken off but this one is in quite good condition for Lechang.

I'm glad you like it, best regards
Tobi

Tobi, Congratulations on acquiring this beautiful piece from Lechang. I love the presentation and it's remarkable how little damage is apparent compared to most pieces from this locality.

I always enjoy looking at Rudolf's show displays - he has exquisitely prepared specimens.
Michael

Actually I would never dare to compete with the photos of professional dealers, especially not when it's Rudi Watzl and his team from Saphira Minerals, they make a great job in photographing their minerals ... but I think they made not the best photo of the nice hematite/quartz specimen that is my latest addition ( https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewtopic.php?p=77073#77073 ) because it does not show the sculptural shape of the specimen. I just found the time to try a photo on my own and I think it's worth being an additional photo to my last post :-)

Regards
Tobi

We can see the Smale's "horizon" much better.

Very nice specimen Tobi. I have not been on FMF for long but do you have a liking for specimens from Dal'negorsk?

Hi Silvia, you are right, I love Dal'negorsk, it's one of my favourite mineral localities. Sure, not a locality for rarities, but I love things like fluorite, quartz, galena and calcite - and Dal'negorsk is a premium source for those minerals.

Regards
Tobi

First specimen 2022: I never had a gold specimen in my collection, it was my dream since I started collecting minerals. Now I finally got one - from our Grandmaster Jordi :-)
