Hi Philip,

thank you! I agree that my photos improved a lot ... maybe not because they're so good but more because the older ones were so bad ;-)

However, i'm glad that this community likes my specimens and my photos!

Cheers!
Tobi

Hi Tobi,

I like your quartz from Morocco. Is the red material hematite?

Regards,

Don

First specimen in 2014:

Double-terminated crystals of golden yellow quartz ("Eisenkiesel") with white calcite. From Alme near Brilon in Sauerland, Germany. What you can't see in the picture: The whole specimen is the top of a once large calcite scalenohedron that was covered with the iron-stained yellow quartz.
