Just as there are certain rules when searching for minerals and fossils, there are also rules on hettangium.de. Because where many passionate collectors, equipped to the teeth, cavort, one understandably also needs a few guidelines so that they do not bang each other on the head with their hammers :).
Therefore, we ask you to take these rules extremely seriously for your own protection and also to respect and interact with each other and of course to take them to heart. Please do not try to find loopholes or circumvent the rules in any way, but observe and respect them as what they were created for. In this way, we can all together maintain a friendly and harmonious coexistence on hettangium.de.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us personally via the Contact form . We will then contact you as soon as possible and try to shed some light on the matter.
