This site is about the collections of Bart and Henny Beukers from The Netherlands.
Bart collects minerals (handpieces and micromounts) and Henny is a sand collector.
Bart started his collection in the year 2003, the year he retired from work.
The micromounts are stored in so called micro mount boxes of different sizes, depending on the size of the mineral.
He owns a microscope which can enlarge the micromounts up to a 100 times.
The collection sand samples of Henny started in March 2009 on Deerfield Beach, a beach in Florida.
Bart's brother lives in Florida and they visit him almost every year. The collection of Florida sands grows and grows with every visit.
