    Thank you PearlMan
    I got a brand new Canon EOS last february, but had waited to splurge on the Macro lens...will be coming this week, then it's the matter of learning how to take the photos. I think I've been spoiled by the easiness of the smartphone camera system, but no matter what top-o'-the-line phone you own...a real camera's lens cannot be beat. Or so I figure

    what canon do you have, my macro lens is for canon mount, if you are interested, I can let it go as I plan to buy new camera, but different mount.
    send pm if you want.
    Yes, phones are not cameras, I made picture attempt, using my avatar clasp.
    Phone is impresionism, camera is hyperrealism

    Great way to explain the difference
    I purchased a low entry level Canon Rebel EOS T100. It works fine for my needs...but it just feels clunky and huge next to my smartphone.

    I candled a couple of pearls. Naturals of course!
    Interesting details...

    This one is one of my small pink conch pearls from the Caribbean's "Queen Conch" or Lobatus gigas (yes, they changed the genus name recently, from Strombus...in 10 more years someone will decide it was best to change it back).

    This other one is a white Mexican Black lip pearl -Pinctada mazatlanica- and the pearl had several "globular" pearly bodies that attached...it was probably several different pearls that ende up fusing together as the pearls grew.Name:  Natural Pinctada pearl backlight (3).jpg
