PostPosted: Sep 30, 2011 06:15    Post subject: "Gail's collection" reach 100.000 viewings!  

Today this thread of "Gail's collection" reached 100.000 viewings.

As we did with Carles Millan's thread , we placed at the start of Gail's thread a yellow star with the text (Alt):"100.000 club" and also made sure that the thread will be always at the top of all threads of the section "Women's Private Collections" ( https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewforum.php?f=17 ) as a kind of small homage to a thread that arrived at 100.000 viewings.

Congratulations Gail, you made 100.000 readers happy! ;-) More, please....

I will happily add more, what an honor! Jim and I spent the day at the Natural History Museum of London with Alan Hart today, I will load up some of the 700 photos I took as we dug through the many drawers with Alan. Incredible mineral photos to share!
What a fabulous way to spend time in London! Jolyon Ralph, and his fiancee Kate, joined us too.
anyhow, again...Thank You!
Cheers, Gail

... a new addition to my collection, a blue cap tourmaline, the one Bill Larson rubbed his thumb across and saw that it was blue? There's a story that comes with it. We have a letter, from Bill, when it was sold to Marc Miterman.

Aie Aie, the Amazonite!
It's far to be the best piece of your collection but in the other side it's remains one of my dream! I cry when I saw this last....
