I have tried to take some photos of bigger crystals. One of them really might be worth to show you.

Rudolf, thanks for your fantastic help with the article!
Feel free to add or edit whatever you want in the Quartz article, I've seen your work in the Fluorite article, and it is perfect, exactly like I want the lay-out to be like. Great!!

thanks a lot for your trusting in me.
I have changed the location of the great Carinthian Amethyst find from "Stanziwurten" to "Sandkopf" as this is the real correct description. "Stanziwurten" is in the west of the cleft while the peak of "Sandkopf" is directly above it.

Beste Grüße aus Bad Bleiberg,

Hello Rudolf!

I think, there is a very important locality for Amethyst here in Lower Austria: Maissau. This occurrence is one of the best of this kind of Amethyst in the world. Please take a look on my Mindat HP.

Hi Martin,
that is worthy contribution. I think Harjo will agree that I add it into the article.

I could not resist to add an outstanding Rock Crystal from the Aschacher find at the locality "Ritterkopf".
Hope you like it.
