“Felix Nikolaevich Shakhov. Slightly above average height, thin and flexible, with a narrow face and a hooked nose unusual for his time dense brush of black mustache, with a rare name and surname, simply ironed suit, he gave the impression of elegance and otherworldly. Began with a lecture that he took out his handkerchief and wiped the snow-white tortoiseshell-rimmed glasses. Spoke slowly, in short sentences, but always with an unusually interesting details or about the history and discovery, or the beauty of its ore mineralogy, as was demonstrated by some striking examples. We were afraid of him, but the thing to know, because Felix Nikolaevich had a habit of suddenly in the middle of a lecture, referring to anyone from listening to students, to ask about the genesis of any field or on the genesis of its ores. It was awkward because not publicly known.”
