See this nice article about our very own Dr. Travis Olds.
Then check out him presenting last week in the Brevnov monastery in Prague, where several of us recently attended the 9th European Conference on Mineralogy and Spectroscopy. And ‘yes’ that is a fresco and giant painting behind him!
If that weren’t enough, later we went to look at all the minerals he collected in the Jáchymov mine with in the Czech Republic with friend and colleague Jakub Plášil. They found some things that ‘might be interesting.’ Perhaps another new mineral?
