I am a mineral lover since young ages and started collecting when I was about 10 years old. My passion grew and grew and by the age of 15 I started to dig on my own for minerals. My first considerable find of fine crystals was at Habach Valley in Salzburg in the Austrian Alps. There I revealed some realy nice emerald crystals. From this adventure on it was designated for me to once start in the mineral business. So here I am. I really hope you enjoy my carefully selected, faithful described and high-end photographed minerals.
