I was at this event. One of rarest classics not photographed was the superb group of Bornite crystals from the Bristol Copper Mine , Bristol, CT, USA. VERY few of these specimens still exist! As Bob Downs said, thank Harvard for saving these old classics. Also, although I met Gail and Jim Spann, I wish I had met Rob Woodside and other Mindat people.
