Ciao Alexander (o Alessandro?)! OK, dopo i saluti in italiano, vado con l'inglese. Welcome to the forum, you will see here we are everybody on very good terms and friendly! Let's wait for something about your researches and your collection! Greetings from Italy by Riccardo. Viva la nostra patria!

I'm a Japanese/chines calligraphy practitioner since long time, is my favorite hobby.

i have a humble collection composed by quite modest specimens but i'm proud of it.

I hope to learn more about minerals and collectors here in the States. I'm also interested to swap or acquire new specimens so if you have something to give feel free to contact me.

Just recently I joined the FMF-club, but have visited the forum for several years. My wife (Annemieke) and I have been mineral collectors for a long time. We started our collection in 1975. In 1980 this came to a temporarely end and we restored our collection in the attic. After our retirement we started collecting again and have become fanatics. After viewing many collections of other people on this forum, we would like to share photos of ours. We'll start posting soon.

Having lived in the Netherlands for some years, I can assure you there are few to no minerals from the Netherlands....it hardly has much solid rock of any kind, and what little there is rarely of mineralogical interest. But there are collectors there, with good collections [mostly from elsewhere...] In my collection, only as a token of the time I spent in Holland do I have one piece of limestone from their 'highest' 'mountain' Mt. Saint Peter 171 m [561 ft.]. Lovely country, but not a bonanza for field collecting ;-) https://www.mindat.org/search.php?search=netherlands

Thank you R Saunders and Peter for your welcome. It's true what Peter said: there are hardly any minerals of interest in The Netherlands for a collector; maybe some strontianite and pyrite in micromount size. So we have none in our collection apart from our micromount collection.

I'm not at all familiar with what is available now, but you can explore the following to see some reported mineral sites: https://www.mindat.org/loc-24644.html

Hi Kevin, as you can see 90% comes from one location (Ratum quarry)..

Welcome, Rob and Annemieke!

But I must disagree about there not being interesting minerals in the Netherlands. One of the cutest pyrrhotites I've ever seen came from a cavity in a flint nodule from the underground marl mines in Maastricht. There is even danburite from the Netherlands... You just have to drill down a long way to get it. ;))

Hello from Utah!

I'm new to mineral identification, it's sort of a hobby for me.

I have some interesting specimens to share.

Hi Alfredo, this is the ultimate proof, I rest my case! (Just kidding). Thanks for your welcome.

Hi,

my name is Stephan W Koch. Since there is already an active member with the name "Stefan Koch", I decided to use SWK as contact rather than my full name.

My wife and I spend part time of the year in Tucson/Arizona and the summers we are mostly in Germany, near Marburg.

I have been mineral collecting since childhood, with a current focus on minerals from Arizona.

Looking forward to many interesting future posts on FMF. Best regards, Stephan

Hi Stephan, welcome to the FMF community!
You spend your summers in Marburg?! I'm also in Marburg :-)

Hi Tobi,

thanks for your mail. It could well be that we have met ... I work here at the University and am involved with the Freunde des Mineralienmuseus etc....

Best, Stephan

Stephan, welcome to our forum! We hope you enjoy the discussions with friendly mineral collectors here (plus a couple of cantankerous ones, but interesting people nevertheless).

Stephan and Rita are close personal friends of mine and I'm glad to see he finally joined the FMF.

Stephan is a quite modest in his introduction. He is a Professor of Physics at both the U of A and Marburg, is incredibly knowledgeable in AZ minerals and has a AZ collection that is only surpassed by guys like Les Presmyk and Evan Jones.

Like most desert rats, Stephan and Rita also appreciate the Tucson flora/fauna and are experts in finding where the local spring wildflowers are best.

he will be another welcome addition to our flock.
