Another quartz.

Thank´s for the administrators to add the new location “Santander Department” in Colombia.

I´m sorry but I have some pieces and the dealers didn´t know any more about the location of these specimens.

Nice quartz! (P1030501.JPG) Can I ask that you post another photo concentrating on the bent crystal near the bottom of the specimen?

Thank you Franjungle. It is the bent crystal I am interested in. These quartzes of yours are very similar to what we find in this area. I find that the only way to photograph them is in good light and reducing exposure to about -1. Best regards.

Hi Pierre I think that the only way to photograph these crystals is in good light and with a lot of luck…

I always try to photograph with different conditions of light and exposure. But a good photo is an almost a miracle.
