What a wonderful surprise. Waking up to discover this video, made a pot of coffe and got a fresh croissant, sat down at the kitchen table and watched this incredible journey through mineralogical history. Made my day. Thank you.

Yes!! I did just what Petace did. Pot of coffee and a doughnut (instead of a croissant). I agree with Tom - he expresses my sentiments exactly. John White is a master story teller, and he has a rich history to draw on. Thanks so much for sharing.

Fascinating, entertaining and informative. Best lecture I have heard in a long time.

Thank you Mr. White and Jordi.
