Franz  Kügel

Austrian collector Franz Kügel was born on March 20, 1927. He worked as a miner in the Sunk magnesite mine near Hohentauern, Styria, Austria. Kügel had collected, among other minerals, very nice dolomite, apatite and phantom quartz from this locality. After his death on May 7, 1999, his collection was divided equally between his son and daughter. The part that went to his daughter was largely sold, but his son has kept the other half (with local specimens) at his home in Hohentauern.
