Nice one, and I like the floating effect on the second photo!
And the last quartz is also beautiful. Smoky quartz is one of my favourite minerals and I like such pieces with different colours depending on the light, really lovely.

Hi Tobi.

Thank you for your post. Nice to see you here.

As a photograph lover, little by little we are evolving.
As a mineral lover it´s a pleasure taking pictures of my small collection.

I found the smoky quartz during my last holiday in 2021 and fell in love with it.

I appreciate you wasting time writing me.

Regards.
