Hi to all

I am an amateur Mineral Collector and have been since the early 1960s.

I have a particular interest in Australian Minerals (especially New South Wales).

Do I have any particular favourites? No, but I do have a liking for Cassiterite (any locality - worldwide) and Smithsonite from Broken Hill, NSW.

I sometimes try and "adopt" a mineral for one year and add a few of that species to my collection, particularly in miniature/thumbnails. Previous years have included Zeolites, Feldspars, Galena and Hematites.

I always try to add a couple of different (especially locality wise) Cassiterite specimens each year.

I now like to look up at the night sky and know that I'm sponsoring a mineral locality that I can always see!
