Gold from Alps.

The site of La Gardette was discovered by cristalliers in the early eighteenth century. It has been well operated for trade crystals from its beginning. Subsequent research has been rather unsuccessful.

Perovskite.

Perovskite is calcium titanate. Perovskite, black or reddish-brown color, has a metallic appearance. Although made of relatively light elements, the density is 4.0. Its modern applications are developed. They involve superconductivity, magnetoresistive and ionic conductivity. The ferroelectric ceramics according built structure are now very important and occur for example in the photovoltaics (solar cells with high efficiency) and fuel cells.
In addition, perovskites are among the minerals that will withstand very high pressures and temperatures, as in the Earth's mantle at very great depths, to the contact of the nucleus (where it undergoes deformation in post-perovskite). The perovskite was described in 1839 by the German mineralogist Gustav Rose from samples from the Urals, and dedicated to the Russian mineralogist Perovski (1792-1856).
A nice destiny for a simple mineral.
Rare specimen.

"Windowed" Quartz,
or Quartz fenêtre, or quartz fenestré.
Rapid growth promotes the development of edges to the detriment of the faces

I had never seen so shaped “windowed” quartz.

PostPosted: Jul 20, 2015 12:54    Post subject: Sainte Marie-aux-Mines Show 2015 - Final submissions  

The first day of my (so desired) vacations is the right time to close my columns about Ste. Marie 2015.

The general opinion I collected from the dealers about the results of the Show in terms of business was not so enthusiastic but curiously the opinions were completely different from collectors and visitors, they were highly enthusiastic! So, as said so many times before, Ste. Marie is something really special which carries a lot of joy to everybody, and share this joy seems the main reason which a small village in the lovely Val d 'Argent is devoted to a mineral Show during many months, as well as which the number of visitors of this Show is continuously increasing (approximately 28,000 visitors with entry this year, 8% more than last year) and which many dealers, even without a big (or even medium) profit, loves to attend every year this amazing Show, hidden in the "Coeur" of the Vosges.

If at least one time in your life you have the chance to attend this Show I promise it will be an experience ;-)

Jordi
PS: please more posts Roger (and others), with they you bring the joy of Ste. Marie to everybody!

Au revoir Ste. Marie!

I like read what the local newspapers say about the Shows. In this case is the local newspaper ADN. As you can see if you can read French language, Ste. Marie is one of the main regional events.

I am by no means an expert on mineral shows but I can only second Jordi's advice: Do attend the Sainte-Marie show once in your life! (preferably every year).
The food, the wine, the scenery, the friendliness and... oh yes, a few rocks here and there. No wonder why this year's show was a "happy edition".
Gérard

PS: Jordi, how long is your eagerly desired vacation this time... 2 hours?

OK Jordi, but now I devote myself (for other amateurs) to the record of the Ensisheim meteorites show which takes place a week before Ste Marie. This requires a work of interpretation of thin sections and writing.
There were fantastic meteorites this year too, but this is not the subject of this forum. Although the meteoritic rock minerals are often similar to terrestrial rocks, such as those that come from Vesta. Precisely petrology of Achondrites is very interesting.
You can get an idea by visiting my club site:
http://www.agab.be
But I promise, I'll post more photos of minerals seen in Ste Marie Show 2015.
Roger.
