How coincidental that I have sent a stamp with a mineral (quartz) in one of the two postcards from Morocco that, I'm afraid, are still in their way...!
It arrived in decent time, about 8 days i think. And it have me a perfect stamp for later in the alphabet ;)
Beautiful stamps! My late grandmother collected stones / minerals and I think thanks to her I love to see stones - even common ones are special :-)
By the way, I think this collection is a delight for the founder of Sunday Stamps (if I remember well, she once wrote she likes minerals but/and minerals on stamps are hard to find)
I think the way they are displayed against the white has a striking effect.
Wow, these mineral stamps are fascinating! Croatia has some great mineral stamps issued, so for the founder of Sunday Stamps, I may have it on my list for my next trip, I would just need the address :)
I don't have the founder's address unfortunately.
I like how these are presented as little statuettes.
I love the presentation as well.
As I studied geology as part of my university course I found this stamps fascinating - I even recognised some of the minerals.
I recognized some, but certainly not all. This is the first time I'd heard of Labradorite, which I think is beautiful.
Love the combination of typeface and mineral, beautiful colours. Look like they could be awards for 'best in show'.
These stamps definitely qualify for that title in my opinion.
