e-Rocks seller and well traveled field collector Tasos Tsinidis from Greece, has some wonderful minerals and stories to tell about his exploits.
He is knowledge of all things mineralogical and Greek is immense, he also is excellent at preparing and presenting minerals.
Recently he acquired a large, 25cm specimen of pale pink rhombs of rhodochrosite from Madem Lakkos mine.
The whole thing was caked in a crumbly quartz, but with time and careful preparation the true extent of the crystallisation has been exposed.
Nice work Tasos!
