Mineral collector from Germany, born 1985 in Berlin. Collecting minerals since 1990, focusing on German localities. My collection consists of four main parts: systematic (micromounts, small cabinets - 1417 species), classics, special locality suites (f.e. Freiberg/Saxony, Hagendorf/Bavaria and Siegerland) and uncommon minerals and localities (locality rarities and "strange stuff"). For me a specimen must not be that what the people today call a "killer piece" and i do not seek to get better and better specimens from minerals still in the collection. A specimen must be a good one, typical for the location (or completely uncommon) - and it should have some kind of history or "personality". That´s why i love old pedigrees: you can see who owned this specimen and the way it has gone through the years...
