PostPosted: Oct 04, 2020 15:27    Post subject: Collection of Sante Celiberti  

Hello.

I opened this new thread to share the section of my collection dedicated to minerals around the world.
As for the method to be followed in the publication, I was tempted to choose the regional one, as I'm doing on my other thread A mineralogical trip through Italy by Sante Celiberti, but that would have taken more time than I can afford.
Instead, I will follow the random order of display in my cabinets.
First of all, I would like to complete the topic of Alpine minerals (with which I opened my thread of Italian minerals) with some non-Italian Alpine specimens.

Hoping this thread finds the same warm welcome as A mineralogical trip through Italy by Sante Celiberti, I offer my best greetings.
Sante

Thank you very much, Philippe. I appreciate your kind comment.
I really invested a lot of energy in assembling the Alpine section of my collection which is second only to the Tuscan one; but I'm rewarded every day by the charm of the individual specimens and the pleasure of two rich Alpine showcases.

Here two small miniatures.

Best regards.
Sante
