PostPosted: Jan 16, 2014 06:19    Post subject: A mineralogical trip through Germany  

Located in the center of Europe, Germany is a country with many different regions that have produced a lot of minerals for many centuries. The long mining history of the country started during the middle-ages; with classic mining regions like Black Forest in the south, Erzgebirge in the east ("Erzgebirge" means "Ore Mountains"!), Siegerland in the west, Harz Mountains in the north, or the giant fluorspar district of Woelsendorf in Bavaria becoming famous for their large occurrences of ore minerals. Altogether the database Mindat lists nearly 1,600 different mineral species that occur in Germany (2013), today most of Germany’s mining areas no longer produce material for industrial use, so many of the treasures from the past became highly desirable among mineral collectors all around the world. This journey through the different mineral-rich regions of Germany tries to demonstrate the diversity of rocks that came out of the country’s mines and quarries. Everyone is invited to add to this journey with pictures and descriptions of their own specimens!

Hi everybody,

The new section A mineralogical trip through Germany is ready thanks to the efforts of Tobi. Thank you Tobi!

Please download as many images as you can from every region according the rules written in the descrption of this section (in the Index page) :

This section of the forum is special in that it is dedicated to images of minerals from the different lands of Germany. So, although you can add as many pictures as you like in each of the existing threads, you can't create any new threads within it.
To see the posts within this Forum please click on the name of the section "A Mineralogical trip through Germany" or on this link
To know more about the reasons for this particular Forum, please use this link


Please remember to write the whole routing for the localities. I mean, please use:

Juchem Quarry, Niederwörresbach, Herrstein, Hunsrück, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany

instead of (for example) :

Juchem, Hunsrück

because the FMF Gallery needs it to work well.

Today, Mindat lists 1,643 valid minerals occuring in Germany, 50 more than 2,5 years ago ;-)

Just a side note: One year ago since my last entry above, today Mindat lists 1684 valid minerals in Germany. Great to see that there are still new discoveries in a country with such a long history of mining and mineralogy! (Of course not all of them, maybe none at all, were new minerals, only new for Germany ;-))

Again, just as a side note: 2,5 years after the last post, Mindat lists 1772. When this topic was started nearly 6 years ago the number was below 1600 which means that each year nearly 30 minerals are found in Germany that have never been found here before ... I would not have expected that ;-)
