The Tobi Martin Mineral Collection



After three decades of collecting minerals, I just wanted to write down the little history of how got into this hobby and how I developed my focus on minerals, and to present the best specimens from my collection. This is a project just for fun, inspired by the many wonderful illustrated collection and museum catalogues and other mineral magazines and books I have seen. Here’s the story.

This type of 'magazine’ display that we often use in this section does not allow photos to be enlarged by clicking the mouse on them. The solution to enlarge the screen is to use the keys: Ctrl + mouse wheel. By turning the wheel and holding the Ctrl (Control) key we can enlarge the image at will.

Great story Tobi. You are completely in the same spirit than me. Few minerals but only the minerals I love and I can see every morning with the same pleasure day after day. Very nice specimen, congratulations.

Hello Tobi,
Your story is poignant with sincerity and passion.
Your conquest of the Mineral World is a lesson for young amateurs.
Do you authorize me to publish it (in French) in my club's magazine, Minibul-AGAB?
I congratulate you on having experienced such an evolution.
I am convinced that it leads to happiness.
Best regards,
Roger.

Nice post, Tobi. You're lucky that you can still return to the Marburg museum. My first experience with a museum collection was at the Academy of Natural Sciences, in Philadelphia, PA. Alas, Philistines were left in charge of caring for that collection.

Mike and Don, thank you, it means a lot to me that you appreciate my work. Your collection presentations here have been an inspiration and they're part of my development. The more I'm glad you like the story!

And again thanks to Grandmaster Jordi for making this a publication on FMF!

Best regards
Tobi

Hello, Tobi.

My sincere congratulations on this wonderful catalogue.

I often had the desire to do something similar with my best specimens, but I have always been held back by my poor qualities as a photographer and by my scarce command of the computer.
As well as with your beautiful minerals, you arouse our interest with other initiatives related to the world of collecting, such as the choice of an appropriate label or the composition of a poster...

Thank you, my friend, for your inspiring participation in the Forum.
My warmest greetings.
Sante

Fantastic work Tobi. I hope it will inspire others to do the same. I will be doing something very much the same with my Panasqueira collection.
