The article by Vasiliy N. Orlov on Gold Nuggets found in the Magadan Oblast and Chukotka Peninsula and displayed at the exposition of the Diamond Fund of Gokhran of Russia, is the lead article in this issue. All displayed nuggets are described in detail and are photographed for the first time. Boris Z. Kantor devoted his regular column to the term druza which is widespread in Russian mineral literature. The column "Jubilee" contains an article by Vladimir I. Pavlishin hosting this column about Alexander V. Sidorenko, an outstanding geologist whose creative way was marked by epic discoveries, and an article by Nadezhda N. Krivitskaya and Sophia K. Ryakhovskaya about Marina S. Sakharova, a wonderful scientist and teacher of the Lomonosov Moscow State University. Bob Jones, an outstanding American Collector, Writer and Editor wrote about himself in the column "My Mineralogical Journey". Two articles in the column "Travels for Minerals": first by Victor A. Slyotov remembers his travels to Shurab, Tajikistan, for celestine; second, Mikhail V. Tsyganko with colleagues tells about a Karst Cavity with Calcite Druses in the “Krasnaya Shapochka” Mine, Northern Urals, Russia, and the third article by Mikhail M. Bitman describes findings of skeletal quartz in Lugansk Oblast this spring. Notes on Mineral Shows – Denver-2016 and Tucson-2017, "Virgin Russia" photo exhibition, and Spring Gemma-2017 are also included. And two great Photogalleries – one by Stuart Wilensky and another by Marcus Budil – are real “pearls”of the issue.
