PostPosted: Dec 17, 2014 12:02    Post subject: Collection of Ricardo  

Hi, I would like to start sharing photos of my collection here in the English side of the forum, I have been posting for a while in the spanish side.

My specimens are mostly boring classics from Mexico. so please do not expect to much quality either the photos nor the specimens.

And for the start maybe the most well known mexican specimens.

Amethyst.
