This month's presentation by Don Dallaire is about a trip Ernie Schlichter and Bill Metropolis took in August 1994.  (Ernie was a well known mineral collector and dealer, Bill is a dealer at our show).  Ernie created a slide presentation for the Rochester Mineral Symposium in 1999 entitled “Collecting Pink Fluorites in the French Alps”.  He also referred to this talk as “A safe Level Walk”.  Don has digitized and enhanced these slides as well as adding some other slides from various sources to expand the talk a bit.  The talk will have a brief introduction and overview of some of the French area they toured ending up in Chamonix, France for the small mineral show that occurs there every year and then the collecting trip with a few follow up  slides on subsequent occurrences.
