World-wide systematic mineral collector since 1978, mindat contributer since Jan. 2004, focused on the mineralogy of Pennsylvania.

Now with the new and improved Mindat gallery, I've finally decided to contribute specimen pics from my other locality collections and world wide systematics, for localities which could use some additional representation. You can still view ONLY the Pennsylvania specimens by choosing the 'Mineral Name/Photo Title' option under 'Which Order' and typing "Pennsylvania" in the 'Keyword Box'. MRH

Field of View: 6 mm

A twinned "Iron Cross", almost perfect, made of the interpenetration of two pyritohedrons, with 90 ° rotation around the axis of gemination [001]. Since this occurs in the class 2/m, with no 4-fold rotation axes, the [001] twin axis gives the mineral apparent 4-fold symmetry about 3 perpendicular axes. Nikon D90, bellows, Schneider Kreuznach Componon-S 50mm f/2.8. Opening focal used: 4.7. Cllection and photo of Gianfranco Ciccolini. Photo of the Day - 28th Apr 2015

4V1-QTHFluorite : CaF2

Schrammacher north-west face, Innervals, Vals valley, North Tyrol, Tyrol, Austria

The very pink colored fluorite has a remarkable 16 cm edge length and a weight of 3.4 kg. The crystal comes from the 600 meter high and nearly vertical Schrammacher northwest face in Vals Valley, Tyrol.
My friend Vincenz Eller found this exceptional fluorite in the summer of 1990. This photo was taken for the Extra-Lapis # 35 "Fluorit" because of an article about the Finder. In the background, the picturesque valley of Vals and the dangerous Schrammacher wall, from which the crystal comes!
This treasure is family-owned since the discovery and there the piece will remain!
