Really impressive specimens, Robert, worthy of a museum display! I like the different textures and colours on the Sepon specimen - and I guess a 33 cm Kelly Mine smithsonite doesn't need any words :-)

Picture 1 of 2. I appreciate this specimen for view of sedimentary rock the malachite was deposited on (picture 2). There are some indications (dissolution behavior and visual) of pseudomalachite, suggesting occasional presence of phosphate ions as solution passed during mineral formation.

Impressive specimens. I love that large galena from Palomo, wonderful piece with large and well-defined crystals!

Thanks.

It was a pleasant surprise to find this galena specimen amongst a mass of pyrite specimens.

BTW - I will be in Prague and Budapest in the coming year. Any thoughts on museums open to visit now?

We were in Vienna, Salzburg, and Munich earlier in the year & enjoyed minerals in a few museums. Great to see minerals from such a range of origins.
