Born in Barcelona in 1953 and living in Tarifa (southernmost point in Europe) since half a life.

Despite striving for not accumulate too many rocks at home, finally find myself with a lot of samples chosen with fairly anarchic criteria, from richness of crystals to any kind of interesting feature, also some ones that arrived just by chance or as a gift.

Maybe because I've travelled across Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nepal, I love crystals from these mountainous countries.

A degree in geological sciences (UAB, Barcelone) and a master in underground hydrology (UPC, Barcelone) helps to better understand some issues of rocks but my modest knowledge is mostly self-taught, result of an inborn attraction, books and magazines reading and in recent years mineral websites, particularly Mindat and FMF.

I really appreciate the help received here from Rob Woodside and many other people. Thank you all!
