Congratulations for a 100,000 views!

By the way, both the marcasite-coated Moroccan barite and the Elmwood sphalerite are very nice.

Regards
Tobi

Thank you for your greetings.

It is a pleasure to share my collection (a very humble one indeed).

It is not so easy to do it in real life. When we have visitors at home, very few have an interest in what is inside the shelves. And fewer understand what it is.

Thanks for watching.:)
Philippe

I believe that "Caland Mine, Steep Rock Lake, Atikokan area, Rainy River District, Ontario, Canada" is correct, please see: https://visitsunsetcountry.com/history-of-atikokan-ontario-canada

Thank you Pierre and Tobi

It is from Trepca in Kosovo

And I don t understand why the locality is not written, I have chosen it in the window. :)
If an administrator can fix it, it would be nice.

Fixed

Thanks Tobi; when I saw it, in the distance: hexagonal crystals on quartz, I thought: what a nice hematite. But no, closely looking at it with the naked eye one can see some crystals that are partly galena and partly pyrrhotite and the pyrrhotite is shining too, not dull.

My skills and devices can not show it very clearly.
