Dr.Wilfried Steffens, *1955
Married to Antje, 2 children (Bjoern-Christian, 17, and Kerstin-Nicole, 15).
I am a physician with special training and degrees in internal medicine, occupational medicine and an additional training and degree in environmental medicine, currently studying clinical toxicology. I work for a large chemical company in Germany. Yes, you may know it - think of aspirine.
My mineral collecting dates back to 1969, when I came across the first crystals during holidays in the Alps. Later I got interested in Scandinavia with its pegmatites, the Langban-type deposits, and finally the alkaline complex around the Langesundsfjord in Norway. From there it was but a small step to my interest in alkaline localities in general.
Today my collection has more than 10,000 specimens, from MM to really large, and about 2,200 different minerals not only from those alkaline complexes.
I am very interested in trade/exchange and I do have a trade list, which you can download as a zip file here as an Excel 95 document.
