Some short notes about my Person:
I was born in 1982 in Vienna (Austria) and started collecting minerals at the age of 12. My first bought specimen was a red Beryl from the Wah Wah Mtns.
In 2004 I started self-collecting minerals in Austria with a special focus on the Gastein valley and the Felben valley.

From 2004-2008 I attended the University of Aplied Science for Tourism Management.

After some years of collecting Micromounts from everywhere I got a lack of space and I realized that I must be more specific in my hobby. Due to the fact that Beryl and Phenakite are my favourite minerals it was clear that I have to set my focus on Beryllium containing minerals.

Nowadays my collection method is really specific because I only collect Beryllium-containing minerals and minerals from Austria. I`ve no prefered size and I´m not interested to have the best of every Specimen. For me it is important to have nearly all approved Beryllium-containig minerals and to have specimens from different locations. Today I have 98 (analysed) approved Be-minerals. Among these there are really rare minerals like Surinamite, Khmaralite, Babefphite, Glucine (TL and Maine!), Ehrleite and Pahasapaite. Furtehrmore I have about 2000 specimens of my favourite mineral Beryl from nearly 300 locations.

I`ve spend some money on a better photo equipment and a good trinocular. Now I will replace most photos in the course of time.

At this point I would like to say a special thank for their support to Alexander Falster, Franz Neuhold, Franz Bernhard, Wilhelm Niemetz and Uwe Kolitsch. Furthermore I want to thank my wife Brigitte that she accept my hobby.
By reason that I have a son with 3 years I hope that I can do some field trips with him in a few years. Possibly he will share the passion for minerals too.
