Thank you James for this post,

it's really an incredible job, I went to explore the site in detail, and the work done by Nicholas Rougeux is really accurate and well illustrated.

To me it also makes available, in modern form, one of the richest and most valiant illustrated mineralogy books of all time, which continues to amaze generations, despite age.

Very nice!
