Holy Bismuthinite, Robin/(Steve)! I have some pink Flourite laying about, but not anything this cool. I wasn't going to use my Macro lens untill after Christmas but you are sorely tempting me.

Many thanks Deanna, these specimins belong to a mineral collecting friend of mine, I have some of my own, but they are not up to this standard. We have done a lot of underground collecting in old tin mines, ....veeerry dangerous! I wait with interest to see the shots that you post of yours Daenna!

Really not my kind of macro, but I wanted to take a special moment to congratulate you on your spotlight (the wasp is scary!) Smile --Chris
