Forgive me my English, I do not know English and so I rely on Google translator.

Just a few info about me and my minerals. I was born 1971. I started collecting in 1981,but really active since 1985 when I began to study the mining academy in Banská Štiavnica. After school I started working in the Slovak coal mines - mine Cigel (1989-1993) and then mine Handlová (1993-2000), which is not much chance to find a nice mineral samples.

I live in Handlová, Slovakia. In particular, The collection I am particularly Slovak and Czech minerals, but to do not specialize - getting everything nice. Now, although I do not have much time for hobbies - my family has priority, but try to time the trips minerals can be found. There is only one sad thing about my collection, you can find something to match the classical specimens from those famous sites only rarely nowadays. But, your hapiness is so great when you find something like the museum specimens!

I take my photos with Samsung NV7 OPS, which only teach properly photographed, the photos may not be good. I will try to improve the quality and subsequently make additional photos of my collection.

So any questions about minerals (exchange, purchase, sale), their locality, or if there are any obvious mistakes in mineral identification, please send me an email.

Thanks for Your visit and enjoy the nice samples minerals.
