British Classic Mineral Specimens

Laurium, with Ike Wilson

While I was in Alderley, Ike got really interested in Greece, and we used to take off to Greece for a while - Laurium - great spot - Warm sun, nice girls, nice mines, nice holes to go down, and nice specimens. We took off for Athens one day - Laurium, Kamareza - Serpieri Shaft... Met a lovely girl in the hotel, Ozzie - but mum was watching us.. so we couldn't get up to much. The mines were great - found loads of specimens - a vein of Cabrerite - lovely pieces, and went underground with one of the miners to collect bits and bobs. Bought pieces too. It was a fun time - very relaxing - wine, lovely Greek food, ouzo, and a few ruins thrown in for good measure..
