Harjo,
You placed the images exactly there where I had put them. But there is one thing I want to ask you: Please, take out my name there, because I did not take these wonderful photographs. I do not want to be honored for something that was not my merit.

Thank you

Rudolf

Harjo,
sorry for my late reply, but my profession is a fulltime job.
Ok, now some complete different. There are a lot of Quartz-occurrences in the Austrian part of the bohemian massife. Most there are Quatz-veins and pegmatites. Sometimes there are clefts like in the Alps but not in this dimensions like there. A example for a pegmatite is the Königsalm in Lower Austria. There was discoverd Smoky Quartz in gemmy quality with a sice up to ~ 50 cm! Unfortunately not in my collection. sad smiley
I will make photos from specimen in my collection and give you informations about the localities. I hope the quality of my photographs is good enough for you. Please wate one or two weeks I have it done.

Please tell me if you visit Austria, so we make a short day-trip. Beginnig in the Stift Melk/Donau, there is a very interessting historical mineralcollection of very good quality we can see. At next we visit Gerald Knobloch. He has one of the best collections with minerals of Lower Austrian occurrences. Than after crossing the Danube-river visiting Erwin Löffler, also a very good collector. Driving along the Danube throu the famous Wachau we come to Spitz/Donau. In Spitz is a friend of me, Josef Bauer. He is winemaker and he collecting minerals in his homearea - a perfect combination I think! The last point of the day is a winetasting in his cellar (Chardonay, Grüner Veltliner and my favourite: Neuburger).


Ok, ok, this "micromount" isn't in my collection

Now that is a great photograph. Please upload it to the Mindat gallery so we can put it in a best mineral article.

A journalist who had traveled the world and reported on many things was asked by a childhood friend who had never left their small town "How people live out there." He replied, "Well, if they know how."

Thanks Martin!
The invitation sounds great, especially the wine tasting part winking smiley
As soon as you hear from Rainer I'll add the photo to the article. If you want I can also ask Rainer or Erwin (I drank many glasses of wine with Erwin in Bramberg over the years..) for the original photo.

Cheers,

Harjo

Harjo,
I have uploaded some pretty nice images of the Döpper Collection. Maybe some will be useful for the article.

Harjo,

I delated the photo from mindat. Uploading this was not correct by me. Thank you for your helpfull offer. I know Bertl Scharfetter not personaly. If you have a better contact to Rainer or Erwin, please ask them, if we can use this or a equal photograph for mindat. I love this photo and I think the most other mindat-members like it also! It shows a very, very rare moment in a collector's live. Collectors from Australia to Canada and Russia,... can see, what is possible in our small country. I hope Rainer and Bertl are agree with our request.

Harjo,
I have just seen the headline: Opening a cleft on Ankogel mountain.
This is not really correct. It should be: Opening a cleft in the Ankogel Group.
As the finders of this cleft are still working at it the exact locality cannot be named yet.
I hope you don't mind.


Greetings from
Rudolf

Harjo,
I have just posted a pic of the best specimen from the spectacular Amethyst find on Sandkopf mountain. Although the picture is not really good it should be in your article. When I find the time I will go to Hubert Fink and take a better pic of it together with some more excellent alpine specimens that you will like.

Rudolph,
I did a tweak using photoshop on the image. Does the attached image look any closer to the original?

Rock,
It looks better.
On Thursday I am going to take some new pics from Hubert's collection. I hope that I will be able to get a better photo of this incredible crystal.

Hallo Rock,
Hallo Harjo,
I have taken a lot of pictures from Hubert Fink's alpine collection which is surely one of the best in Austria. You might find some useful material for your best minerals projects in my most recent photos, I hope. There is also a better pic of the Amethyst with the most intense color.

Rudolf,
That looks good. I can't imagine Harjo not wanting to put it in the article.

Done.
I'll check your photos tomorrow Rudolf, and add the other photos too.
I added the photo of Petra in the Kluft to the preface. Hope you like it.
Many thanks again for your help. It's becoming a reference article.

Harjo,
It really looks great already. You are doing a wonderful job. Thanks for adding the photo of Petra. Sometimes I think you can read my thoughts.
Many greetings from Bad Bleiberg

Rudolf
