Hi There,

I am collecting minerals since I can walk - must have been mostly dirt in the beginning, I cannot remember. The oldest piece in my collection is a calcite I found in the age of 8 in southern France. A first area of focus were minerals from the Eifel volcanoes, nearby my hometown of Aachen. In the Eifel I got infected with micro minerals - have a close look at the picture on the left ...
Since 1991 I focus on collecting minerals in Binntal, Switzerland, and finally moved closer ... currently living nearby Zürich.
My more general interest lies in alpine and REE-minerals, preferably self collected - I love multiple day 'Strahler' trips in the alpine regions.
Over time I also developed a special interest in geology and geo chemistry of the Binntal area, combining my professional background in materials science with geology.
Using this knowledge of Binntal, me and some good friends are hunting new discoveries, you may hear about sometime ...
In case you are interested to get a perfect and up to date overview of all Binntal occurences, and how many of them are in my collection, please visit:

Meanwhile I work also as photographer of Minerals, as you can see on my page here, but please also check out my own homepage "Design by Earth":
