The issue presents information covering all our regular themes. In the section “Famous Mineral Localities” we publish an article, with many pictures, on the Banská Štiavnica mining district by A. Russ and S. Jelen (Slovakia) that includes brief historical review of mining activity, short description of geology and data on the most interesting minerals. The phenomenon of parallel crystal groups growth is discussed in article by B.Z. Kantor (“A Guide to Ontogeny of Minerals” column). First data on Kamenushinskoe, a new locality of fine specimens of azurite and, especially, malachite recently found in Siberia are given in the section “Discovery of the Year”. Our reports cover several mineral shows of the last third of 2014: Gemma in Moscow, Jewelry Olympus in St. Petersburg, Mineralientage in Munich and the Denver Show. A highlight of the issue is mineral paintings by an artist V.L. Shcherbina who demonstrates now the series “Masterpieces of Eastern Europe from the Fersman Mineralogical Museum”. A brief report from England, where the Mindat UK Symposium-2014 took place, and the Photo Gallery in which S. Wilensky presents Mineral Treasures of the United States, concludes the issue.
