Volker Betz - Zeolites and other Minerals for Exchange

Last Updated: 14th Mar 2011

By Volker Betz

Hello All,

as I am an active mineral colletor since 1965, I have accumulated quite a number of duplicates of my main selective interest in minerals: ZEOLITES. This duplicates I offer here for EXCHANGE.

In my first years of collecting I was a "systematic" collector and was also interested in some individual locations. All that (non zeolite) stuff which rested in my drawers over the time now has to go as I need more space for the zeolites.

Somewhile ago I started to upload pictures of what I would like to exchange for Zeolite specimens. If you cannot offer this we can discuss (by mail) alternatives. Beside Zeolites I collect old mineralogical literature, good Apatite crystals, Boracite and pseudomorphoses. I am not a specific Micromount collector but have a lot for exchange and accept this size. More minerals and pictures will be added in time.

The following gallery shows Non-Zeolites and Zeolites separate. Click the pics for full size and details. Please write for additional data.

I answer a fast as possible, but I also kindly ask for your patience. This is not a business, it´s a hobby and so there is no reason to be in a hurry . So please do not expect fast transactions.

Mr. Betz,
I've really enjoyed your photos and other contributions to mindat. I also am interested in the zeolites and their associated minerals, but still have a lot to learn. Unfortunately, I don't have anything of interest for tradeing, but do have a question.
I'm curious about the crystalline material at the bottom of the vug in your "for trade" photo of Tschernichite. What the heck is it? I get totally lost when I don't see a crystal habit in a mineral, and don't have a clue about the possible associates of Tschernichite.

Thanks in advance, Bob Knox

Hello Robert,

Most likely it is Hyalite
