Hello.

I continue to post specimens from Italian Alps.
I like isolated crystals, even better if floating. Nevertheless the 90% of my minerals are on matrix.

I hope you like them.
Best regards.
Sante

Hello, Administrators.

I can no longer log in automatically. I have to write the boring password every time. Even if I click on the appropriate box nothing changes. Same thing with "End warning messages".
Could, please, a Site Admin help me by doing it for me? Thanks in advance. Regards.


Not having new photos ready to publish, I take this opportunity to attach some old photos of Brosso specimens.

Best regards.
Sante

Hello

I want to share some curious quartzes from the Italian Alps.
I'd like comments, suggestions and -why not?- corrections.
I hope you like them.

Best regards.
Sante



IMG_20191203_191133.jpg
 Mineral: Quartz (variety smoky)
 Locality:
Formazza Valley, Ossola Valley, Verbano-Cusio-Ossola Province, Piedmont (Piemonte), Italy
 Dimensions: 35 x 12,5 x 3 mm
 Description:
Double terminated Quartz with Tessin habit is quite scarce. Even more if the crystal is very tabular, as in this case. The right termination, which seems damaged, is actually crudely crystallized (possible attachment point).

 Description:
Back view. What seemed to be a first generation crystal has actually grown on a previous milky crystal (in turn covered by Chlorite). So the final crystal is a Quartz of third generation (not counting the Chlorite depositions).

Another view with another light. As you can see, it is completely crystallized except on a lower right portion, which could be a possible attachment point. If so, the hypothesis of a rehealed shard becomes hard to accept.

Hi Sante,
I like your collection and your choice to specialize in Italian minerals. Beautiful crystals, for example the Titanites and Magnetites and those different garnet varieties. I envy you for your surroundings, because I live in Holland, a country which almost completely lacks collectible minerals.

Cheers,
Rob

Thank you, Rob, for your kind comment.
I also really like your beautiful world collection, the quality of your photos and, above all, the fact that you share your passion with Mrs. Annemieke. Unfortunately my wife, despite being the daughter of a miner -or precisely because of this-, doesn't love minerals.
Yes, I'm lucky to live in Italy, a rich country in minerals among other things.
Actually I collect minerals from all over the world (over ten thousand), althogh my focus is on Italian minerals and particularly on the Tuscan ones since I live in Gavorrano.
For the moment I've decided to post only Italian specimens on this forum.
Warm greetings.
