Tobi, I think you look much better than Homer but the resemblance is striking.

Thanks for your coverage. Great specimens and photos! I miss, however, more silver minerals. Harz was also the land of silver. There only is a nice pyrargyrite (and a gorgeous manganite).

Sorry for all who feel like Carles! I already told him via mail that the lack of silver minerals in this report is related to my personal taste: I'm not attracted to silver minerals (well, except silver-bearing galena ;-) ) and so i rarely think of photographing them in museums. There were simply too much fluorites and galenas that caught my attention :-)
