Excellent photos, as usual !

However, it would be still better if you let us know the size of each specimen.

He can't Carles. These are the specimens on display in the "Hidden Treasures of America" so not chance to measure them accurately. He can say just something like "miniature", "cabinet", "large", "extra large", so I will do it now for him.

difficult for me to said excatly size behind glasses. I can said with zoom of bridge but it's not very simple.

pseudo boleite is the smallest FOV is 30 mm and specimen 10-12 mm ? FULL ZOOM of FZ28

First cumengeite specimen 30 mm ?

secund cumengeite specimen 15 mm ?

Boleite size is 20-25 mm ?

for benitoite it's possible to see on John Veevart website in his personnal collection.

The six blue very expensive looking secured cases that I saw in the "Hidden Treasures of America" exhibition must be nominated for the most stupid showcases on the market. Most upstanding specimens needed to be laid down on their back because the shelves stood under a 30 degree slope.

Thank you for your very nice, sharp and super detailed pictures from that exhibition Ploum,

Fred, Jordi, Roger,
All these photographs are magnificent by themselves. The fact that they were taken through glass, and the reflections are negligible makes them miraculous.
Thank you.

Thank you very much Dean.
I see that your alias is 27Al. The 26Al isotope has also played an important role in the origin of our solar system.
I still have some photos.
Roger.
