Jolyon Really great photographs, and with the excellent resolution of your camera it is possible to zoom in on individual specimens. On most shots the labels are readable, though a slight shutter shake or too small print, affects some of the cases. Brings the viewer right into the displays. Nice. Thanks.

The Harvard Tsumeb azurite has an interesting formula. But who am I to doubt Harvard?

Of the dealers I asked at the show, 0/14 liked the drums. But 14/14 agreed that drums were better than singing bowls. There was general agreement that if music must be present, then jazz would be the choice.

The 'polar bear' schorl and albite is/was The Arkenstone's signature specimen, on their home page for many years.
