Terry Wallace, for whom the mineral terrywallaceite is named, is a member here and has posted his own photo in his gallery at http://www.mindat.org/user-14124.html#2
I don’t know Terry, but he probably wouldn’t mind the photo being on the mineral page. I would do it myself but I’m not sure how.
He also has a blog with some posts on silver minerals, mineral collecting, and other geology and nature subjects that are quite interesting and well written:

Haineaultite added, thanks.

Having trouble with Terrywallaceite I added the photo ID but its not showing, perhaps as there is no description about him, will look into it.

That's right it needs the description field filled in

I received a message vis a vis discussion group on photos. I attach a more modern photo of Terry Wallace (me) which appropriately ages me.

Selwynite, named after Alfred Selwyn - photo on Victorian Government website...



Don't know if the image can be used.

Steve, I tried to upload the image of Alfred Selwyn you posted above, but it is too small for our program to accept. Can you get a larger picture of Selwyn?

According to Julian A. Sohon, on page 24 of Connecticut Minerals, Their Properties and Occurrence, 1951, "Columbite is named after Columbia, a name for America where it was first found".

Not without playing around with the image Rock. What's the minimum dimensions?

"What's the minimum dimensions?" = 350 pixels wide by 250 pixels high.

I've added another image of Selwyn. See http://www.mindat.org/photo-659704.html
This is from the the wiki page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_Richard_Cecil_Selwyn
I hope it is helpful.
