A Mineral Safari
Posted by Ray Ladbury
I'm planning a mineral safari for sometime during the August/September/October timeframe. Possible destinations include the gem and mineral show in Teofilo Otoni, MG, Brazil or Ratnapura district in Sri Lanka (including Ratnapura and related gem markets and Kolonne). This is mostly silverpicking, although you can sometimes find a dump to dig in. I've been to both of these destinations before with good success. Anyone else interested?
