Not problems to fix anything on your posts, is a real pleasure considering the quality of the specimens you share with us as well as the accurate details you supply.

About the necessity to use the autonomous region (Andalusia) or not, recently we improved the downloading of images, and as it is visible in red in the box "Locality", we request for these details:

Locality (Mine / Quarry, Place, County, State, Country)

please note that "Andalucia" in English language it should be "Andalusia" -> https://www.mindat.org/loc-18078.html

Again, don't be preoccupied for these details, we work on it from our side! ;-)

Good morning Mr. administrator, thank you for correcting the error writing pyromorphite in English.
I would appreciate to also change the name of the region autonomica which has been included in the source text, not it is "Andalusia", written correctly would be "Andalucia". I have not included the name of Andalucia, because I think that for users of the Forum FMF in English-speaking no makes sense, since they do not know the administrative distribution of Spain by autonomous communities, so with Spain is sufficient.

Hi Enrique!

It was me who made the corrections. I'm very sorry, but I couldn't imagine you would disagree with them, so I'm going to revert right now the changes as you wish.

First of all. I can swear the original pyromorphite locality that was posted yesterday was just "San Andrés Mine, Villaviciosa, Córdoba". Period.

My actions were limited to (1) delete the tilde in "México" in the previous photo, and (2) complete the pyromorphite locality in a way that were nearer to the name recommended by Mindat, which is "San Andrés Mine, Espiel (Villaviciosa de Córdoba), Córdoba, Andalusia, Spain" ( https://www.mindat.org/loc-18078.html ). So I added "Andalusia, Spain" since I thought both words were missing. Perhaps my mistake is really Mindat's mistake.

That said, I believe the toponym Andalusia must also be right, at least in English, as you can see at Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andalusia If not, someone has to notify them the mistake in order to be amended.

Excuse me, Enrique. I'm going to change the name Andalusia in your post. If you want anything else corrected just let me know.

With my best regards,

Carles M.

Sorry for my ignorance of English, because I did not know that "Andalucia" translated is "Andalusia".

With regard to the locations you have reason, as should be more rigorous, and before putting the town check with Mindat, lest I'm wrong or have more information than I it.

Anyway I think that unless the location is wrong, should respect that indicated by the Member, even that would not be as complete as possible.

Thanks again for your selfless work.

A greeting.

E Llorens.

The issue that in the first place pushed me to modify your post was not adding Andalusia but adding Spain, which was missing. Then, after looking it up at Mindat, I decided to include Andalusia as well. That's all. Somehow I feel obliged to make these small corrections as a way of justifying my status of moderator.

Please, don't stop posting your excellent specimens. Thanks!

In English, at least American variety, Andalusia is correct.

Actually, the more detailed the locality information, the better. If someone doesn't recognize a portion of a locality, such as a city or commune, then they can always look it up. Research and exploration are the source of knowledge of things and places previously unknown.

Totally in agreement.

Thanks for your opinion.

Your Dalnegorsk quartz, a very nice one, is not beta quartz. True, it mimics beta quartz a little, but it is instead typical lower temperature alpha quartz. This habit is referred to as the Cumberland habit, because much of the quartz from Cumberland (now Cumbria), England, crystallized in this habit.

Thank you, Mr. White, his scholarship on these issues makes their comments become dogma to me.

Your knowledge creating school.

Much obliged. E. Llorens.
