Jim

Good to see material from that area. I used to collect there as a child.

I lived on a farm in Landenberg so have finds from our fields and from the surrounding area! Mica, Schorl, etc.

PostPosted: Apr 11, 2021 17:00    Post subject: Re: Jim’s Mineral Collection  

I received a message stating that I reached a limit of 15 specimens and couldn't add any more to my collection page. Is there a way to get around this?

Thanks!
