#rhodochrosite #slice from the #famous #capillitas #mines #capillitasmine #andalgala #catamarca #argentina. This is also called #incarose. Always wanted to have one of these but I missed to purchase one when they were still plenty, now finally got one as part of an older #mineralcollection. #argentinianminerals #argentinabeauty #argentinatreasure #thumbnail #thumbnailminerals Collection no. 1000 - should I stop now? 🤔

#rare #phenakite #crystal from #anjanabonoina #madagascar #madagascargems. Interestingly, #phenacite means #deceiver but I guess in a #positive way since it got its name due to the #resemblance to #quartz which is much more abundant than #phenakit #raregems #gemstones #gems. Collection no. K3125

How cool is this? #blackandwhite grown together. I guess the #black #quartzcrystal was there first since #smokyquartz #crystals get their colour from #radiation so the #white #scepterquartz #crystals must have grown onto the #smokyquartzcrystal later in time. This #incredible #yinyang combination was found near the #grossglockner #kals #lienz #granatspitzgruppe #tirol #austria #österreich #austrianminerals #alpineminerals #alpinequartz #yinandyang #tao. Collection no. K5366

Very #attractive combination of #calcite grown on #galenacrystals with #delicate #needlequartz on the side. Looking a bit like the head of #bigbird #bibo from #sesamestreet with a #silver #beak this comes from #trepca #staritrg #staritrgmine #trepcamine #trepcaminerals #mineralcollecting #minerals. Collection no. 945

If you think that #auricgoldfinger had a #novelidea when covering #jamesbondgirl #jill in #gold in the #jamesbond #film #goldfinger, think twice! #mothernature came up with a similar idea some 80 million years ago which you can see from this large #golden #marcasite #nodule which has grown around a #petrified #seaurchin, likely an #echinocorys as you can see from the #ambulacral plates of the seaurchin at one side of the #marcasitenodule. Found in the #80s in the #lägerdorf #quarries #schleswigholstein. #markasit #markasitknolle #schreibkreide. Collection no. 938

One of my favourite #minerals is the #gemmy #orangeyellow #baryte #honigbaryt from #pöhla #schwarzenberger #schwarzenbergerzgebirge #erzgebirge #oremountains. This #barite specimen has particularly large #crystals and was found during the #wismut #mining activities in the #gdr time. Collection no. 947

Resembling a #spacestation these are #gemmy #twinned #selenite #gypsum #crystals from #pila #wielkopolska #großpolen #polen #poland. This #floatercrystal must have been found pre #ww2 since the label states #schneidemühl which is the old #german name for pila as the location for this #polishbeauty. A similar albeit smaller #selenitecluster was in the #martyzinn #mineralcollection #polishminerals. Collection no. 944

Today is the 29th #anniversary of the german #reunificationday #tagderdeutscheneinheit. I still remember the exciting times in 1989/90 which instilled a „nothing is impossible“ sense in me since the „Wall“ and the german separation had so far always been regarded as a given everlasting fact and reality with the thought of unification being just wishful thinking. Interestingly, even during the #ddr times there have been connections between #mineralcollectors from #eastgermany and #westgermany as the label for these #bitumen infused #whitecap #gypsum #crystals demonstrates: the #gips crystals were found during the #ddr #gdr time in #1986 and acquired by a #mineralcollector from #westgermany in the same year according to the label. The #gypsumcrystals were found in #sangerhausen #thuringia #thüringen were a large #coppermine was in operation until #1990. #mansfeld #mansfeldsüdharz #mansfelderkupferbergbau #thomasmüntzerschacht #coppermining #germanhistory #selenite #asphalt #mininghistory.

#darkpurple #fluorite #crystals with #pyrite from #akchatau #mine #akchataumine #akshatau #shet #karaganda #kazakhstan #kazakhstannature. These fluorites are also mentioned in a minerallogicalrecord „what‘s new in the mineral world article“ posted on 10 October 2005 (sale of a #martyzinn #mineralcollection). This nice #mineralspecimen was purchased in #1995. collection no. 914
