This was my first showcase ever! These are specimens from my personal collection, accompanied by my photos of them. The prospect of colour-matching prints to specimens under unknown lighting conditions was a little terrifying, I don't mind saying, but I was very happy with the results (and after all that worry, there was very little intervention necessary I might add!).
Tremolite from Minden, Ontario. 12cm high.
This is the one that I did have to tweak a little. Greens seem to be a real problem in digital, and although my camera (Pentax K20D) does a good job with dioptase, it didn't quite get this one right. I did manage to get it pretty darned close, but there was a greater apparent difference in the case than under my proofing light because the specimen and the print reacted differently under the cool white fluorescent.
