Rocks and Minerals / by Let It Be Raw

I said a long time ago that I would take more pictures of rocks and minerals. I haven't the best set up, and I have been having a hard time trying to recreate studio lighting with a lamp. This is my first experiment of many in rock and mineral photography. I did use digital camera body, but I used my film camera lenses because the detail is just... better. Here are 4 minerals I photographed today.

1. Yellow/Gold Quartz

2. Amethyst

3. Unidentified

4. Gold

The last two are minerals from my grandfather, but the first two I found at Goodwill. It was a really lucky find! This wooden wall hanging is the perfect place to store them:
