I am currently a student studying Geology at university. I have been collecting minerals 'properly' since about 2013 and at the time of writing (August 2017) have around 400 specimens in my collection. I mainly collect phosphate and arsenate minerals from all around the world, not personally (although I'd love to :D); however, I don't restrict my collection entirely to these two groups.

I am uploading photos of my whole collection to Mindat in 'My Photos'. To view all of my photos, 'All Images' has to be selected in the 'show' bar to show user gallery only photos. Most of my photos have interesting child photos as well. My favourite photos are on my flickr page.

I also have a gallery of unknown specimens. I would really appreciate it if you checked them out, and if you have any suggestions on species identity or possible locality please send me a PM. Thanks
