Christian Rewitzer sent to us his Christmas greetings in the best way, giving us 44 of his superb photos which I will publish as time permit.
Here you have the first five jewels.

Christian, we love you! ;-)

Robyn, that's why micromount collectors don't envy cabinet specimen collectors ;-))

Hello Jordi/ Alfredo:

Please transmit to Christian my thanks for the kindness in providing us with these very detailed and useful information. They will be very useful to me.

I would like to fully endorse Jordi's comments about Christian: he is one of the kindest and most knowledgeable dealers on the mineral business.

Merry Christmas and a Perfect 2010 to all of you.

Hi all,

I've been quietly enjoying these wonderful images. I presume they must be "stacked" images. Christian, would you confirm this, and if so, tell us how many images you stack and how you space them?

Beyond that question, I wish to say the lighting is fantastic. This is a challenge in photographing minerals in general, and second only to depth of field for micromounts specifically. The lighting carries so much information to the eye! If well done, the image springs into 3-D. If not well done, we don't understand what we're seeing!

Hi Pete,

Many thanks for your compliments.
Usually I use between 10 and 30 layers for one pictures. More details you will find at the top of the first side.
If you or anybody have any additional question please feel free to ask and I will try to help you.
You can contact me via FMF or directly via email to c(dot)rewitzer(at)web(dot)de

I wish you all a Very Merry X'mas and a Happy, Prosperous and Successful New Year!

Christian

I love the first atacamite picture so much that I want to make a painting of it, but I would not want to infringe on intellectual property.
