Jim and I were at the Springfield show for just a few hours, sadly, as we had family obligations and had to rush off, but first we wanted to pay our respects to Marty and Rose Zinn and a few others as available. So I took photos rather quickly with my Sony camera.
Please just enjoy the photos and the few people I managed to capture on "film".

Thank you Gail. Great to see.

The "can only be found at Navajun" is a bit of an exaggeration. I have collected in the area and there are many localities, such as Valdeperillo and Ambasaguas plus numerous others. For example: https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewtopic.php?p=25873#25873 image181.

Hmmm. Perhaps you might bring that up to Marty? I bet he would actually appreciate knowing that? He is really a wonderful collector. Cheers! And thanks!

Hi!

The straight distance from Navajún to Valdeperillo is only ca. 12 km. And from Valdeperillo to Ambasaguas is even less, about 4 km. All of them belong to the same geological area, although not to a single owner. In my humble opinion this discussion has no sense.

I would like to add a quick comment remembering to all the FMFers that publish hundreds (or thousands ;-) photos as Gail do usually is an enormous effort and it consumes a lot of time.
As Gail well said in the past it is a "kind of act of love" sharing these images with everybody.

Well, we added recently an "I like" option in every post, you can see it at the bottom of them. Why you don't use it and in some way reward Gail for her never-failing job to show to all of us what happens in the different Shows? It will be a kind of "thank you" to Gail and I'm sure she will appreciate it...

I already did it! ;-)

I know something that is even better than many thumbs up - words: Gail, thank you again for your effort and passion in capturing all the highlights of the mineral world! I think everybody here knew before what kind of collection Marty Zinn owns. But your photos of these fine displays show us how incredibly aesthetic and precious this collection really is. You did (again) a damn good job, Gail - there are not enough thumbs up in the world to honour this ;-)
