Collecting trip in Italy


Last week my buddy André Robbemond and I were on a collecting trip in the Italian regions of Lombardia and Piedmont, together with our Italian friend and colleague Nazareno La Manna. Under his inspiring guidance we made friends with a number of other people in the field of mineralogy, visited a number of very interesting collecting locations, and above all had a lot of fun. The results are yet to be awaited though: parcels with some 50 kg of collected material are still on the way... I'll report on the finds later..
