Photos et Vidéos
Restoring a specimen as close as possible to reality is a permanent challenge. The photos are taken without saturation, with neutral calibration of the screen and a white balance "Nikon Natural Auto: guarantee of more precise and natural colors, close to those visible to the naked eye" (Dixit Nikon), and a contrast slightly accented for more detail. We advise you to watch them on a computer screen (with a natural / neutral setting) rather than on a smartphone whose tendency is to color saturation.
We select flawless parts, however in the event of an area, fractured crystals, cleavages, contacts, small shocks on the tip of the crystals, these are indicated in the description, and a close-up photo of this area is provided.
If, few parts are in video (for a fluidity of display and speed of loading of the page), we can provide you videos of the specimens, preferably by sending files by Wetransfer allowing videos in high definition), in this case, we make a video in natural, neutral light (avoiding full sun), and one, under a led spotlight. If a clear photo allows you to see every detail (and defect) of the sample (generally avoid any purchase on a blurry photo or video) , Ask us, in addition, a video, it often allows to better apprehend the volume of the specimen.
