Tobi, I know you know I meant 500,000 views, but 500,000 posts wouldn't be bad either :-)

Sphalerite from Russia (it was a horror trip to take a photo of the black lustrous sphalerite on the colourless lustrous rock crystals ...). The sphalerite is not damaged, it looks somehow etched, maybe re-healed during growth (?):

 Mineral: Sphalerite, Quartz
 Locality:
Dalnegorsk, Kavalerovo Mining District, Primorskiy Kray, Far-Eastern Region, Russia
 Dimensions: Specimen size 9,5 cm, large sphalerite 4 cm, largest quartz 2,5 cm

Tobi, have you tried using a dark background?
Since the sphalerite is lustrous, it might show up nicely and the overall appearance with the surrounding quartz could somehow be improved.
Hopefully not another horror trip :-)

No, the result was much worse than the photo above :-(

Fortunately not because I soon realized these photos were rubbish and I stopped the dark background experience ;-)

Hi Tobi, try sky blue background with tracing paper over it. I use this for most of my specimens, except blue specimens and a few other mineral species that looks better with darker blue or white.
