GeneralThe other side of Rock Currier

I have had to keep this quiet for a long time, but there was another, secret, side to Rock Currier that most of you have no idea about :)

No wonder Rock obtained such incredible specimens..... ;-)

007 yet to boot!

That's so interesting!

What I want to know is, where is his famous scale bar: the one inch brass bar "with a rule at one cm" that shows up in so many of his photos?

Right here!

wow what a cool little non-mineral to own!

I don't own that - this is the original, and the photo was taken yesterday in Rock Currier's kitchen. I am currently staying in Rock's house for the very last time while we sort out packing up Rock's immense book library (which now belongs to mindat!)

If we find a spare of the brass inch rules (and there should be some here somewhere) I may be able to get one :)
