I can't find words for those mineral specimens, Salim, they are simply beyond words. The combination of quality/aesthetics and their incredible sizes makes them one of the best and most valuable mineral collections in the world. Keep up that great work, you inspire every mineral lover in the world with your surreal collection of outstanding masterpieces :-)

Salim, thanks again for that inviation! My wife and I are expecting our second child for the end of October, so it's not the best time for planning such a journey ;-) I hope one day I will make it ...

P.S. You missed the locality for the great galena on 324.jpg, where is it from? :-)
