I took this photo a few minutes ago and have no idea what it is which makes it difficult to describe but I’m sure it’s interesting.

Erin

Looks like there was one of those unmentionable blue minerals hiding behind the Mexican topaz :-))

Cheers

I forget what that blue mineral is. Something like "Aquaman" maybe?

None of this day of live reporting has been my responsibility!

So mindat is going to have an actual physical presence here in the U.S.? Cool! (OK, I'm a bit biased, I'm a Yankee)

"Mononclinic" minerals - some more questions on these three mineral pictures :
• Rhombohedral system for gypsum ?
• Any rectangle in this gypsum crystal ?
• Any face with 6 edges in this gypsum crystal ?
• « Monoclinic » system for turquoise ?
• Turquoise picture … or quartz ?
• Any parallelogram in this crystal ?
• Triclinic system for beryl ?
… is this what is called « alternative mineralogy » ?
Thanks for your reports !
