Tobi. Thanks a lot for your comments.

I currently have about 87 beryls, of which 47 are aquamarines from Pakistan.
The truth is that aquamarines (and beryls in general) are my weakness.

Yet what worries me most are the coppers .... I have 797 specimens :-)

It is not a copper addiction..... I hope so!!!

I worked for years in a gold mine in the north of Spain: http://www.foro-minerales.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=11066
And that's why I have so many copper ....

I currently have 3829 copies in the collection ... that's why I can say ... that I'm a Mineralaholic.... :-(

You better think twice before you start adding emeralds to your already amazing beryl collection. It's an incurable addiction. I tried to quit many times but failed repeatedly.
