Sepp & Walter Burgstaller     

Sepp Burgstaller is a mineral dealer and professional mineralogist ("Berufsmineraloge") in the town of Zell/Ziller, Zillertal, Austria. His company name appears to be "Wurzensepp," though this may also refer simply to the location of his shop and mineral museum in Zillertal, which is associated with a historic mine chapel, "Haus Unterflörler," built in 1250. His father, Walter Burgstaller, a professional rock hunter and cutter ("Berufsteinssucher un Schnitzer")is nicknamed "Wurzensepp," and is also a mineral dealer, as well as the official caretaker of the old chapel. Their addresses appear to be nearly nextdoor to each other--Hainzenberg 28 for Sepp and Hainzenberg 79 for Walter, though this may simply reflect a move for both of them.
