Photos"Pending approval"

24th Jan 2020 09:30 UTCGianfranco Ciccolini

This photo and two more (1013556 and 1013557) after being approved, have now been back in the "Pending approval" status for some time. What is it due to?

A question was raised as to the stated locality after it was initially approved. Considered more likely to be the Platt Prospect.

I didn't raise the query but I'm inclined to agree. I presume a message was sent to you.

I suggest that you recheck your source for the locality info.

Yes, I had meant to check on my pyromorphites from the Kapi, before getting in touch, but it’s sparse there and the colour and form of both the crocoite and pyromorphite look identical to that in the Platt. Wonderful pictures though. If you can check with your dealer it would be good thanks.

I have a second specimen whose label shows the location of Kapi, with the pyromorphite in dark green crystals and larger than those photographed here and very similar to those depicted in Photo ID: 76938.
It therefore seems that the Platt prospect location is more plausible than the one on the label. Pedriò, if you agree, I will change the location.

I approved them site wide.
