Welcome to my micromounts and thumbnails website

Micromounts and thumbnails from all over the globe

Almost all specimens are from my personal collection. In every picture the FOV is mentioned, which stands for Field of View: the width of the picture. Some microcrystals measure up to 5 mm, and some are even smaller than 0,5 mm, most are between 1 and 3 mm. Mineral specimens of this size, when mounted in a transparant box, are called micromounts

Thumbnails are a bit larger, say from 5 up to 30 mm - which is quite arbitrary of course. They have a separate page.

The exposed specimens are not for sale or trade, but I have lots of micromounts ready for exchange. If you feel like exchanging, please contact me, and we can always come to a mutually satisfying agreement. 

If you like to be notified when there are new additions, then just fill in the contact form with your name and e-mail address, and I will put you on the mailing list. You can expect to receive a notification once or twice a month.

And of course a site like this is never finished...always adding new photos and replacing old ones...so everything is always under construction...
