Hello

I like the Amethyst from Morocco. It has some aesthetics.

I got an error message when I add youtube video, so I just post the video link. If it breaks the rule of forum, just ignore it.

It would be nice to have the details of each rock: mineral, locality, dimensions. Some we can guess but others not so much

A really nice little piece with a great surface structure, I really like it though I'm not that much into vivianite!
But as James said above, please provide the size and the exact locality information for each piece.
Thank you!

Reticulated Cerussite crystals from Tsumeb are always high on most collector's lists. This snowflake specimen is from ex Mike Groben collection. Just watch the video to get the beauty of it.

If you want to add a link to a particular point within another Topic on the forum you can copy the link to the particular point of interest and include it in your text.

The forum does allow you to type in direct links to web page on the following web sites: FMF, FMF Gallery, Mindat, WebMineral, Mineralienatlas.de, Strahlen.org, strahlenfoundation.com, RRUFF-IMA project, Mineralogical Record, Rock&Minerals, minersoc, MTI, Minercat (Grupo Mineralógico Catalán), Minval (Societat Valenciana de Mineralogía), Wikipedia, Minerales.info

For links to other web pages outside the forum you should use the same method when writing them as that used when adding email addresses.
For example: https://www.foro-minerales.com/forum/index.php, is a link within this forum so can be typed in directly, but had it been an external link you would have had to have added it as:

http(:)//www(.)foro(-)minerales(.)com/forum/index(.)PHP

I am not aware of any YouTube embedding button. What are you thinking of?

Xiao-dong: the system works but not for the /shorts/ option from YouTube.
We'll work to fix it but on the meantime you can upload them if you use the regular system, not the /shorts/ option.
