I just managed to perform an update to the gallery, including some nice new German specimens.  The above is a Wendishain Thunderegg and definitely an improvement on what was there before.  One of my most prized saxonty specimens.  Here is another Wendishain spcimen:

Also uploaded is a tiny yet lovely specimen from the super-rare location Meisenstein – only the second I have ever seen:

A Seebachsfelsen thunderegg showcasing the most beautiful form the location can take, with green-tinged matrix and colourful banded agate.  This one could use reworking to get rid of the chips on the face, but is still a beautiful specimen:

And lastly, a few new specimens of the most ghostly of the white ghosts of the kaolin pits, Gröppendorf.  These stark white stones, less common than their cousin Querbitzsch, are starting to come across with a distinct identity of their own.
