I was born in 1973 and hunt minerals since I was 8 years old. My Grandpa and my parents took me to Rauris Valley in our holidays and at the age of 12 I found my first rock crystals.
I live in Linz and a little village near Salzburg. I have a enchantress by my side and I am proud father of one son.
I collect minerals from Austrian Alps and fluorite from all over the world. In 2008 I start to photograph minerals and I hope you enjoy my images, at least the newer ones.

I am looking forward to receive any information about fluorites and it will be my pleasure to hear from you.
