This minerals trip is a little hard or strange, when I was doing minerals trip, the weather condition is bad, when nearlly back, weather is ok. I also met the snow when I visited Chenzhou area(Chenzhou,Yizhan,Yaogangxian). And I visited GuiLin minerals market-YiZhan-Yaogangxian-Chenzhou-Ganzhou, then take the train back to ShangHai city, anyway, got some minerals back. So cold when I was in Chenzhou, Yizhan, Yaogangxian, I met the snow.
