Rock,
As Austria is missing in your Anglesite article I want to show you two specimens of Mine Stefanie in Bad Bleiberg.

Rudolf,
Can we get pictures of the entire specimen? We rarely use images showing just part of the specimen.

I should have known already. Here are the pictures of the entire specimens. I am not sure if they are good enough.

Rudolf,
Yes, they are good enough. I put the images in photoshop and lighted up the shadows and in one case applied a little minor color correction which I think makes the specimen look a bit better. When you are taking pictures of a dark mineral like galena it is better to take the pictures on a light colored background, I generally used a light gray. Otherwise the dark outline of the dark mineral tends to disappear against the dark back background.

Thank you, Rock!
One time I think I will be able to make good pictures after all your lessons.
