Jolyon,

You already have a photo of Waldemar Christopher Brögger. Do you want another? If so let me know and I will upload it or you can take it from here. This one appears to be from later in life and has a signature with it.

"Minerals with belgian roots-From hopeite(1824) to tazieffite (2009)"

by E. Van Der Meersche, P. De Paepe and G. Stoops
Academia Press, 2010, Ghent, 231 pp. (ISBN 978 90 382 1531 0)

shows portraits of people after whom minerals discovered in Belgium have been named (Part I), and of Belgians after whom minerals discovered abroad have been named (Part II). About 120 sections are comprised of a biographical sketch, a bibliography, crystallographic drawings, and fine pictures of the concerned mineral species.

Fine idea and excellent craftsmanship. J.J.

Jake,
Do you really think Arthur Montgomery was one of the two greatest field collectors?

Updated: Poughite, kidwellite, munirite, liddicoatite.
There was already a (different) photo for pabstite and bröggerite.
Parnauite, thorneite, wattersite, whitmoreite, montgomeryite and overite had already been updated by someone else.
