Very nice capture of a lovely gift Janice. I once found a piece of the lovely gemstone at the top of a very long hike, just laying on the ground. It's only about 1 inch around but still treasured nonetheless for it's beauty. This one seems to glow in the photo. Well done.

Wow, your explanation beats everything.
Interesting subject. Are you collecting minerals?
You write about it as if it is the crown jewel.
The picture itself could be better. Put it on another surfface and try to get more structure by shooting from the side.
Never mind, keep on looking for the postman, he always rings twice.

A beautiful piece of quartz. Well captured, and well explained in your excellent notes. Another amazing example of nature at work.

Nice shot! I've always had a soft spot for geology, so it's only natural I'd be drawn to this one sooner or later... Amethyst is beautiful, and you've captured this piece well, although it's an unusual colour - this specimen is almost pink, most is a deeper, more darkly purple colour. Anyway, focus and DOF are spot on. About the only thing I'd suggest is perhaps a closer approach to exclude the fabric maybe? I also wonder whether a lower angle would accentuate the crystal forms better - hard to say without looking at the specimen in reality though! Anyway, a very nice shot, thanks for sharing it :-D

Aren't you so lucky today to receive this beautiful Amethyst. I'm a huge rock collector myself. The Amethyst is well captured, I think you managed a few sparkles.
