  1. High res images are preferable. (Text posts are okay too)
  2. Include the mineral's name in titles.
  3. Images should be rehosted on imgur or something similar.
  4. If the mineral has been cut, polished, dyed or treated somehow, and it's not obvious, indicate that in the title. Also if it is not a image of a mineral (such as artwork).
  5. Don't be mean. If you think we need to be more specific here, this is probably directed at you.
  6. Reposting a mineral that has already been featured here is okay, so long as you don't use an identical image.
  7. Posting minerals from your personal collection is allowed and encouraged!
