30 Things You Don't Know About Moz: #1

I'm starting a small, 30 part series, sharing with my 3, maybe 4 blog readers, little known facts about me. 30 is my age, and thus the number here. Someone thought it was remarkable, I let my 30th birthday pass without any fanfares ... but then, that's another unknown fact about me:- I feel very uncomfortable celebrating my birthday, because it's unnatural to me. But that someone's persuaded me to do something to mark my 30th year on this planet. So, this is my response - 30 things you don't know about Moz ...


#1: I am a mineral / crystal enthusiast

I collect minerals, more accurately, I collect crystals. But not seriously, and not at a large scale. I'm just a small time collector who likes quirky or hard to find crystals. And I won't spend top $$ ... it's something I enjoy, but it's not a hobby.

Just like to see how the raw form of these semi precious stones look like before they're processed and cut into the finished products that just costs arms and legs.

I like unusual speciments, and always look out for nice, small samples. Here's a few from my collection ...


Topaz, natural termination, from Afghanistan


Emerald, natural crystal form, non-gem quality, attached in matrix, origin unknown


Aquamarine Cluster, with some gem-quality crystals, large cluster in matrix, Afghanistan
