Leor Goldberg's Photo Gallery


Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Oshikoto Region, Namibia

Dimensions: 50 μm x 50 μm x 50 μm
Field of View: 500 μm

This is a mounted microprobe fragment of Ekatite, measures something obscene, I estimated. Only found in tsumeb! It has been analyzed, but I will probably have it analyzed again at some point.

To take this photo I used a samsung galaxy s6 digiscoped over a Nikon SMZ800 with a plan 1x objective. Simple LED desklamp for illumination.

Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Oshikoto Region, Namibia

Field of View: 1.2 mm
Largest Crystal Size: 1 mm

Obtained from Tony Nikischer who conducted the analysis which determined this previously unknown species. This piece is a portion of the 4.1cm holotype specimen in the collection of Bill Pinch, which can be found under photo number 230609. To photograph this specimen I used a monocular compound microscope, the standard diascopic lighting that came with it, and an Iphone 5 positioned a few millimeters from the eyepiece. This was the best of roughly 30 attempts. The color has not been altered in any way, though I cropped the photo because the image was not centered due to the Iphone 5's position. Without a doubt this piece is among my favorites in my collection, a true rarity I never thought I would obtain. Many thanks to Tony Nikischer of Excalibur Minerals!
