Hello. I'm Paul, Zurich, Switzerland, middle-aged father of two boys who bought an old pyramid inlaid with glued stones from a second-hand dealer. The pyramid was very old, from somewhere in the Ural Mountains, as I was told. But the stones on it were... God, I have not experienced such feelings for a long time, taking apart the pyramid in pieces, cleaning each stone, identifying them for several hours a day for a month! That's how I found my hobby, I guess. Hi, everybody!

Were you able to reconstruct your pyramid? Hope so.
What minerals does the pyramid contain?

Oh, and welcome Paul. :smt039 Please make yourself at home.

Thank you.
No, I had no task to reconstruct the pyramid. I took out all the stones and made small wooden boxes to store them. I was able to identify most of the them, the stones were rare and semiprecious minerals from the Ural Mountains, somewhere in Russia (pyrite, opal, rhodonite, quartz, chalcedony, jasper, malachite, agate, chalcopyrite, dolomite and many others).
