Thank you Tobi. Let's say the Calcite is a tribute to the founder of this forum; we bought it from him at the Ste Marie show.

And in the Clara Mine Museum where I was some years ago. Your large specimen would even fit in there :-)

I would rather say the perfect, the other perfect and the rather ugly ;-) For me, the Indian natrolite and the yellow quartz from Mésage Mine (I LOVE THAT SPECIMEN!) are outstandingly beautiful. Really, that quartz is just a pleasure, wow :-)

I think your apatite crystal is from the Cerro de Mercado mine in Durango, Mexico. See: https://www.mindat.org/locentries.php?p=2316&m=29229.

Excellent collection so far! I'm looking forward to see the rest. And as a baryte collector, I have to say those are my absolute favourites from what you have shared so far. :D

P.s. Extra leuk om hier een landgenoot te treffen!

Thank you Niels. One of these days I will have a look at your Baryte collection. Saw it in a glimpse and that was already quite impressive!

PS Ja zeker leuk. Was jij degene die een artikel over de Clara barieten hebt geschreven? Ik weet niet meer waar ik dat tegenkwam.

Regards,
Rob
