PostPosted: Jun 06, 2017 08:36    Post subject: Sainte Marie-aux-Mines Show 2017 - A fine article about Ste. Marie 2016  

The quality of the Russian Magazine Mineralogical Almanac / Mineral Observer is improving and improving and in the recent issue Mineral Observer number 3 devoted to the 300 years anniversary of the Fersman Museum I found this fine article about Ste. Marie 2016 that I liked so much. This article is written by Mr. Jacques Touret a well known retired professor of Petrology-Mineralogy in Paris, France, related in the past with the École des Mines.

I believe he been catch the soul of this Show and thanks to the enormous generosity of the indefatigable editors of the magazine Ludmila Cheshko and Michael Leybov now we can offer here this article as a kind of appetizer before the arrival of Ste. Marie 2017. Don't miss it, I hope you enjoy it as I enjoyed. I believe is great!

To read it well please do click in each image and then enlarge at your convenience the size of the hi-resolution version that will appear, or do click in the image below to access to the whole article in PDF format :

The live Webcam of Ste. Marie to have an overview of the Show at every time (with daylight). Just great!

The cultural activity in Ste. Marie this year is overwhelming, there are so many attractive activities (see below) that I recommend knowing them by visiting the section CULTURAL ACTIVITIES from the Show website ( http://www.sainte-marie-mineral.com )

PostPosted: Jun 22, 2017 23:37    Post subject: Sainte Marie-aux-Mines Show 2017 - A wonderful visit  

Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines 06/21/2017

Wonderful journey yesterday in Ste. Marie. A lot of visitors, a lot of activity and, and, and... the visit of one of the most well known team of collectors in the world: the team Gail & Jim Spann!

I'm publishing the photos below on behalf of Gail till she gets better internet connection. Gail promised to publish hundreds of photos of their experience. This is their first time at Ste. Marie.

A suivre! 😘

I met Jordi for the first time in his booth.
What a kind person.

We both agreed that the word to describe this show is" overwhelming", particularly for me: it was the first time to attend a show like this. The eyes were tired.

On Saturday, after 5 hours cruising from the swimming pool to the theater, to the numerous tents, it was time to have a beer (they still had to lot Fiebre Verde);
Sunday morning with less people and after a good night, it was easier to appreciate the beauties.

Some pictures here, (not the best specimens perhaps but they caught my eyes).
