PostPosted: Jan 19, 2011 15:37    Post subject: Nimfiara's collection  

Well, I guess this is where I hang my collection, so I think it is time to start.
I imagine that will be interested to see minerals mainly Spanish, so I will give preference to these.

If you have any questions or want to broaden their information from any of them, do not hesitate to ask, I will answer them gladly.

Hope you like

Nim,
very nice stuff .. i especially like the Massabé Quarry quartz (the 1st). As i collect myself some spanish mins i would be curious about what you have from Almaden and Tharsis for instance - i have been there on field trip in 1989.

Cheers
Roger

Thank you for posting your photos! It's good to see an assortment of minerals from localities in Spain that many of us way out here (North America) are not very familiar with.

Hey young lady, those photomicrographs are really excellent. It appears that you are far more advanced as a collector than I realized. Way to go!

Very soon your ears may be burning because Jordi and I will no doubt be talking about you in Tucson.

In Tucson? I'll tell Jordi to give you kisses for me when he sees you (but I want pictures of the time, lol)

The photomicrographs are complicated, I can not do good photos, but sometimes, by chance, some goes well (it is only luck and a non-technical), but as I like both minerals, I can spend hours with them, photographing, observing with the stereomicroscope, cleaning, placing in the database, looking at photos on the Internet .... There are so many interesting things to do!

Still do not get so much as he wanted. I finished my studies but I have no job yet, so I do not have enough money to buy whatever she wanted, and I have no car to move around to collect minerals or visit with other collectors ...

Still, I have the luck to have good friends who sometimes take me to the field (and now anonymous donors who help me with the magazines n_n), is much more than I deserve and am slowly learning more.

I hope not speak ill of me in Tucson! or I will hurt my ears lol

PS: I was never in any mineral show outside Spain, but I've seen pictures of Tucson and it's awesome! I would love to visit sometime, but it would be dangerous because I can stay there for three months or more if need be, want to see everything!

(my mother would worry if I will travel one week and three months have not been back yet lol)
