Hi everyone,
If ever you go to Berlin visit the Museum Fur Naturkunde at 43 Invalidenstrasse, The mineral hall is superb, here are some photo's I took last time I was there. I have a heap more from previous visits but they may be lost, they were on my old laptop which had its hard disc destroyed by a virus.
