Mindat.org Seeks Support

By December 15, 2013

Follow me on:

Anyone who looks online for deep, solid information on minerals has encountered Mindat.org, which presents more kinds of data than you can shake a rock hammer at, plus photos contributed over the years by collectors. I didn't realize that Mindat began as Jolyon Ralph's personal site 13 years ago, but it proves that with time and dedication anybody today can build a world-class resource. Now Ralph is campaigning to make Mindat a permanent achievement by raising funds to establish a nonprofit institute. There's no tax deduction involved, but tax deductions are never the point, right?
