PostPosted: Sep 19, 2016 10:07    Post subject: Collection of Manuel Mesa  

Hi everyone,

I have enjoyed looking at the many specimens displayed on FMF from your collections. Now I'd like to share my collection with you. Collection that started about 35 years ago when my father brought me minerals from the mine where he worked.

You will not see top specimens, but I hope you enjoy them.

That depends on how you define "top". If "top" is what you see in the MIM Museum or in Giazotto's private collection, well, then we have no top specimens at all here on FMF ;-) We should better say "good" or "nice" or "aesthetic" specimens - and you DO have such ones! I'd like to see more from your collection ...
