Wellcome fellow rockhunters!

Just a few info about me and my minerals. I live in Prague, Czech Republic. I started collecting in 1983. Mineralogy is "just" my hobby, not a profession - I am a neurologist.

My mineral collection is composed nowadays only from self collected specimens. The only exceptions are gifts from my family or friends and a couple of specimens bought in the end of 80's (again gifts from my parents).

I do go out for field collecting nearly every week, the great amount of my "mineral" time is taken by macro and microphotography of my specimens.

The last of my mineral hobbies is photography of specimens from Czech Republic in museums (where You can see the glorious specimens from the past - e.g. Prague, Wien..)...and of course I upload photos to and edit text in Czech locality pages on MinDat.

I take my photos with Canon EOS 550D with:
- Sigma 24mm f/1.8 EX DG Aspherical Macro (FOV above 50mm)
- CANON EF 100/2.8 MACRO USM (FOV above 18mm)
- CANON MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x (FOV 3-18mm)
- stereomicroscope MEIJI EMZ-13TR (10-70x) (FOV under 5mm)
- Zeiss Luminar 16mm with bellows (FOV under 5mm)

I do use photo stacking with Helicon Focus for MAC.

Examples of some of my favorite specimens collected in 2009 and 2010:

So any questions about localities where I have been or if You see some evident mistake in mineral identification, please send me an email.

Thanks for Your visit and enjoy my photos!
