Minerals bought at the Bergslagen -98 trip


This is the list of the minerals I bought during the 1998 Bergslagen trip. It is concentrated on the minerals from Långban because we should go there without Ingemar Johansson. With a number of samples to compare our findings it should be a little simpler to identify your findings.
