Compliments from Romania!
Your Romanian minerals are amazing!
By the way, did you visited the Museum of Gold in Brad Romania? Your gold crystals remind me of it.
Your hessite is also wonderful.

Hi David. Thank you very much for your congratulations, very well-accepted. Brad no, but I visited Museums in Freiberg, Vienna, Praga, all with wonderful Gold and tellurides samples expecially from Romania. These of mine are just an idea...However I've some other good specimen, hope you enjoy it.
