Well, I guess someone has to be 'first' - so here goes!

I hope that you have all had a mineralogically interesting and exciting year, with lots of good finds and new acquisitions. For me 2019 has been extremely busy, working to see through the publication of my second book Minerals of the English Midlands. Thank you to everyone who has shown an interest in, and support for the project. If you have not seen a copy, some sample pages can be found here https://britishmineralogy.com/wordpress/?page_id=878

All the best for a great Xmas and a successful 2019!

Roy

Merry Christmas to all. I find the location to this one very fitting. Former collections of Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, and Les and Paula Presmyk.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and all the best for the coming New Year. Hope everyone has a safe trip as they make the annual migration to sunny Tucson. My wife and I will be leaving the cold Canadian north in a few days, perhaps we'll run in to some of you during the show.

Seasons greetings to you all,
Joseph
