This weekend it was 6 years since my father passed away. I miss you, and the moment we shared.
About the mineral collection, I think he would be proud to see how I develop it. In the last year, I have almost sold nothing, focusing more on making digital art of the collection (the eCryptonite project). And I have also focused on buying a couple of excellent-quality specimens.
I am very proud of the new specimens in my collection. Here is a world-class Quartz crystal covered with Anatase (and some small Rutile inside). It was found in the Himalayas mountains (Manihar Valley, Kullu District, Himachal Pradesh, India) earlier in 2022 and it has some insane quality.
I wish I could buy much more, but I am very happy with the ones I got :) Cheers,
