There are some great pictures loaded already: eg. http://www.mindat.org/photo-193965.html

So all we need is a bit of info on the discovery and the specimens

Regards,
Ralph

Thanks Con, these look good and i have added them to the appropriate articles. I have seen the great gypsums with the copper inclusions and a picture would be good if we can find one.

Regards,
Ralph

Hi,

I added some Austrian and Belgian Anatase to the Anatase article: http://www.mindat.org/forum.php?read,66,138167,138167#msg-138167

Cheers

Harjo

p.s. I also linked the trimorphs Rutile and Brookite to their respective pages if that's OK.....

I (think I...) finished the Emerald article. Or did I miss something?

Harjo,
You didn't finish the emerald article. No one will ever finish an article. Your first draft is pretty nice however. They will be like your children. They will always demand your attention weather you want them to or not.

Is anyone working on Fornacite?

I doubt I'll be able to finish it but I'd be glad to help start it up! If anyone is working on it, or wants to help please let me know!

Help would be VERY appreciated, especially with pictures not from MinDat.

Thanks!

Hi Ben,

It would be great if you want to do the Fornacite article!
You can always ask us for help (when needed), either here or by PM and we'll look at your work in progress and give you advice.
About photographs from outside Mindat; we only use photos from the Mindat database, what you can do is ask the owner of the photos to post them on Mindat or ask for an authorisation to post them yourself, when you do that you can fill in his/her name as the copyright owner in field at the bottom of the uploading page (default setting will be your name).
For Rock's great guide about lay-out, linking photos etc folow this link: http://www.mindat.org/mesg-63-115152.html
Godd luck with writing the article!

Cheers

I'll start on the main Beryl article lay-out and the separate articles within a couple of weeks.
I first have to get a theatre tour behind me that has me playing six days a week (and has already been doing so for over a month) but when it's done I'll get my teeth into it (and I might even have some time again to go out in the field....sigh...)

Cheers

I think I'll start cordierite, including sekaninaite and indialite. I cannot promise any date for uploading anything yet. Please let me know if anyone has started already.

Olav, No one has yet expressed an interest in doing the articles on Corderite, Sekaninaite and Indialite. We would be glad if you undertook to do the first draft on those minerals. Ill open a thread for each of those minerals in Best Minerals to get you started. You won't be able to edit or change the thread posting I start, but you can reply to that thread posting and do all your work in that field. When you finish your first draft, Ill delete my work and move yours to the top of the thread. As you work you may find that other mindaters will add to the thread with suggestions, corrections, images etc that will help you with the article. So far I have found most of the suggestions and corrections by others to be of considerable benefit when working on various articles.
