Gail and Carles, thank you for your comments.

Thanks a lot for that praise. But my collection is really humble compared to some of the other FMF members and their world-class collections of fine minerals. Nevertheless i'm glad to hear that you like my minerals!

Hi all,

Inspired by Carles Millan, i will start a kind of "old specimens, new pictures" campaign because i made some real fuzzy and bad quality pictures for this thread. Sure, there are some specimens not worth the best pictures, but i will shoot my best specimens again and post them in better quality. Hope i don't bother the community, but some of the pictures here in my thread are really bad and the specimens deserve better ones.

I will start with the vanadinite specimen that once was also the beginning of my collection thread - but this time with a picture that is a little bit larger and better than the old one (just compare it to page one) >> https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewtopic.php?p=4537#4537

Cheers!
Tobi

Here's another quartz specimen i like very much (shown before only on a poor photo), sceptered amethyst from Brandberg:


Amethyst_Brandberg1.JPG

Amethyst_Brandberg2.JPG
 Description:
Quartz var. amethyst

75 x 50 x 40 mm

I suppose most of you love quartz sceptres, so here's a closer shot of them (each one measures ~ 25 mm) ...
