Hi, my name is Enzo and I am a researcher of minerals.

My research areas are currently Sicily. Soon I will insert some mineral samples coming mainly from this region, but not only. Some of them are macro and some micro and still are struggling with photographs immediately informing that I use the phone to take photos and therefore do not expect high-level photos. If you have the patience to follow me in this roundup you will certainly notice that some places of origin will be little, or nothing known.

The reason is simple, Sicily, apart from some sectors concerning sulfur mines (not even all of them because between small and large in a territory that it includes three provinces in particular which are Agrigento, Caltanissetta and Enna, where most of the sulfur mines are located) and a few other areas, the rest is almost completely unknown, particularly in terms of collecting.

See you soon for the first roundup of photographs.
Greetings.

Here we are, I thought I'd start with some classic samples for Sicily, like sulfur. Overall, however, I will avoid, as far as possible, inserting classical minerals from classical locations
here is the first one below
