Romanian Minerals

Romania has long been the source of precious and base metals. Since Roman times, miners have toiled in the famous mines at Felsobanya, Herja and Kapnic, etc., and have recovered who knows how many beautifully crystallized mineral specimens. Over the years the neams of those places have changes to Baie Sprie, Herja and Cavnic. The names may have changed but the crystallized mineral specimens are the same or better than ever. Here are some wonderful specimens from that part of the world.
