I'm really honoured by such a large amount of views in my thread. It's only a humble collection of ordinary minerals, presented with only little photography skills - the more i wonder that so many of you seem to like my thread. Really great to be among the collectors who have so much views here in this wonderful forum!

Thank you all so much :-)

Tobi

Thank you, Tracy!

What could be a better way to say thank you to this community than creating and publishing some more collages?! Some of you may remember the mineral collages with specimens from my collection that i posted some pages before in this thread - here are some more to thank you for more than a 100,000 views!!!

First one: Pyromorphites fom Germany :-)

Cheers!
Tobi

These are very well done. How about adding an unobtrusive scale?

Ru, sorry that there is no scale. But i consider this collages as an artwork i don't want to add too much text that could distract the view from the minerals.

And Pablo, thank you! But my collection is not a museum, quantity AND quality are not enough for that comparison ;-) Nevertheless i love to present it that way. The next one is about minerals from MOROCCO:

Once more a German fluorite classic from an old Black Forest locality. The Hesselbach Mine which produced large green and blue clusters of fluorite was closed during the 1950s, and thus specimens from that mine are hard to get, even on the German market. This specimen has a vibrant green colour that changes depending on the source of light.

Very nice Picher Galena. Great aesthetics. I really like it! I believe you'll be able to improve the previous owner's photo.

Congratulations!

A slightly better picture of the Black Forest fluorite (really hard to capture, this specimens looks a lot more impressive in person):
