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