The above is a birnssite after serandite.


Above is a carletonite crystal looking down the c axis. The spray of needles included in the crystal are aegirine.

Excellent mineral photos Doug. Looks like you did a great job on the DOF. In all three you can see the chrystal structure very well. Great job of showing the inclusion in the carletonite crystal, I am sure it was not an easy shot to capture. :smt023
