PostPosted: Apr 07, 2011 10:42    Post subject: Balkan exhibition at the Marburg Mineralogical Museum  

Hi all,

the Mineralogical Museum in my hometown has a special exhibit "Glänzender Balkan" (Lustrous Balkan) where many extraordinary specimens from countries like Romania, Bulgaria and the former Yugoslavia are shown. Yesterday i took a walk through the exhibition and took some photos. I want to share those impressions with you, if you like it.

Cheers!
Tobi

I just found out that my memory really underrated the size of the pyromorphite specimen from Bulgaria; it's also on mindat and the size is provided with 20 x 17 cm: https://www.mindat.org/photo-286675.html Sorry!
