Hi everyone! I'm Orlando, a geology student at the University of Padova in Italy, a mineral collector and photographer.

My passion for minerals is something quite recent in my life, I started collecting minerals in 2016, when my good friend Pietro brought me with him collecting crystals close to our hometown, since then my passion has grown fast and recently I've been trying to test my photograph skills on mineral photography.
I collect mainly minerals from Italy and Switzerland, in particular from the area close to my hometown Bologna and alpine minerals from Lombardy and Piedmont.
Mineral collecting is a good opportunity to mix my greatest passions: mountain hiking, climbing and photography and to meet amazing people all over the world that share the same interest.
My studies and my interest towards geology give me the chance to look at minerals not only as wonderful and mysterious jewels but also as crystals that have a long history to tell and that have formed in particular and unique contexts inside the geological timescale which can give as a glance on the evolution of our planet.

All the photos you see are taken by me.
