I am very interested in both chemistry and geology, and minerals to me are where these topics meet.

A few years ago I started a web site on quartz. My interest in that mineral is very broad, to me a chert is just as interesting as a gwindel. For some time all my collecting activities and trips had to do with filling the "virtual quartz museum" with photos, figures and computer renderings. During that time I have acquired a good knowledge about that mineral and how it behaves in different environments.

As a Mindat manager I work on all that is related to silica minerals and their varieties, as well as silicious rocks.

Other special interests: petrology, microscopy (thin sections), photography.
I love to field-collect and explore.
