Hi Jacques,

I have almost finished revamping my micromount trade list and would be happy to swap lists with you.

Hello Jacques,

can you send me your list? erwin.moeller(@) I am looking for minerals from the Black Forest and Kaiserstuhl area (Southwestern Germany). I have lots of samples of secondary minerals from Clara Mine (e.g. cuprotungstite, duftite, bayldonite, rankachite and lots of others) and minerals from the whole Flack Forest such as ferberite or hemimorphite for trade/swap.

I have not done much trading by mail to date, nor do I have a list of available material. That said, I've just culled my collection and removed replicates which I'd love to exchange with someone who's got British/European material to spare.

My specimens are mounted on corks with Elmer's water-soluble glue, on black liners in standard 25X25X20 mm black plastic boxes with clear lids; the species and locality information are on the labels, along with the Strunz 8th code and single-letter xl. group designation. The labels are on card stock and glued with water-soluble Elmer's, so the label can be soaked off easily and your own label pasted on, if you so choose.

I'd propose sending a "grab bag" of different specimens, say 25 to 50, chosen for aesthetics first. The vast majority of material will be from the western United States. I guarantee some genuine treasures.

In return, I'd expect the same number of different specimens of equal quality, mounted or unmounted.

I read and write French and some Spanish if that helps.

Email me if you're interested: Thanks in advance.

Hello Jacques,

I just wanted to send you a message on your private mail address but curiously an error message has coming back to me.
So, I'll put my message below :

The following message to was undeliverable.
The reason for the problem:
5.1.0 - Unknown address error 550-' unknown user account'

Bonjour Jacques,

J'ai vu votre message sur mindat concernant votre nouvelle liste d'échange.
Si vous voyez quelque chose qui pourrait vous intéresser dans ma liste, n'hésitez pas à me le signaler.
Vous la trouverez à l'adresse suivante :
Je m'excuse pour toutes les publicités intempestives déversées par multimania mais je ne saurais pas les enlever.

Sur ma page d'échanges, j'ai placé les échantillons avec des photos et cela me prend énormément de temps.
J'ai peut être aussi d'autres choses.
Je fouille beaucoup dans ma région, ici en Belgique. Si quelque chose de particulier venant de Belgique vous intéresse, vous pouvez toujours demander. Je n'ai peut-être pas mais on ne sait jamais...

Enfin, si vous voyez des choses pouvant vous intéresser, vous pouvez m'envoyer votre liste pour que je puisse l'examiner.

Bien cordialement,
