WOW! There were some great minerals and interesting persons and information in those shows. MORE SHOWS PLEASE! With a few exceptions, especially at the museum cases, the curator was moving too quickly past the minerals to focus on them....slow that down in future! In some shows I could see a favorite mineral that looked great, but was never gotten to. That can't be avoided, just saying it was a frustrating as enjoyable sometimes. I went to Yale and the mineral museum was a ten minute walk from my house. With my Yale ID I could get in for free and think I went about once per week. A lot of [if not all] museums are now closed, but probably would LOVE to have someone show off what their collection is like.....so do keep that in mind along with the private collections.
These shows so filled the need to see minerals I have been missing from the lack of shows now...and likely will last another 1-1.5 years! Keep em coming!

Roy,

Thank you for your input and for your support. We're having such a wonderful time doing these programs!!

I'm encouraged by the fact that you're doing online symposiums too. We all need to do more things like this to keep our community connected during these times.

Are you also posting your symposiums on YouTube??

If so, can you forward me the URLs?

All the best!!

-Bryan

PostPosted: Nov 05, 2020 14:42    Post subject: Mineral Talks LIVE - Episode 19 - Sami Makki; Matrix India, Pune, India  



It seems like we started this program only yesterday however, here we are at Episode 19. For this episode, we travel to the other side of the planet and sit down with Sami Makki from Matrix India out of Pune.

You can catch Sami at mineral shows around the world - and looking at these wonderful treasures from India, you know why. In this interview, Sami shares some videos of the work they do in the field before walking us through their showroom at their headquarters. Sami ends the tour by sharing some INCREDIBLE pieces from his personal collection that make us gasp.

Check out our interview with Sami Makki and then stop by and say hi to him at the next mineral show.

This episode originally aired on October 7, 2020.

Mineral Talks LIVE is a joint-venture effort put on by BlueCap Productions, the Mineralogical & Geological Museum at Harvard University and the Society of Mineral Museum Professionals (SMMP). This series was created as a response to the COVID-19 situation that has been greatly affecting the mineral world by isolating and separating us. Our goal is to bring a new venue where the mineral world can re-connect with each other during these difficult times.

Mineral Talks LIVE - Episode 21 - Tama Higuchi; Mineral Artist, Dallas, Texas, USA
https://go.mineraltalkslive.com/Episode21

I think it’s safe to say that EVERYONE reading this description LOVES to look at beautiful minerals. Well, in this, our 21st Episode, we’re going to take a slightly different look at beautiful minerals - through the eyes of the artist.

Tama Higuchi is a 20-year old Graphic Artist living in Dallas, Texas, who took up painting minerals about one year ago. The results are absolutely stunning. Applying her skills in graphic design with her incredibly aesthetic taste in minerals, she has created some incredible mineral art that anyone would be proud to hang on their walls. And, ever the innovator, Tama is constantly searching out new techniques and materials to push her work to even higher levels.

Join us as we spend an hour with Tama while she shares her background, her perspective and her wonderful mineral art.

Mineral Talks LIVE - Episode 22 - Katherine Dunnell; Earth Science Technician, Royal Ontario Museum, Ontario, Canada
https://go.mineraltalkslive.com/Episode22

For our 22nd Episode of Mineral Talks LIVE, we head up to the Great White North and focus our attention on Ontario, Canada. There we can find Canada's largest museum - The Royal Ontario Museum - and we get to go inside the museum for a private tour with Earth Science Technician, Katherine Dunnell.

This interview goes a full 23 minutes over the one-hour mark because there are so many incredible things to see at the ROM, that the show just decided to keep rolling!!! Not only will you see some incredible minerals AND gemstones, but you'll also get an incredibly in-depth perspective on the thought and strategy behind the design of this museum that hosts over one million visitors per year.

So join us on our journey with Katherine Dunnell, who is every bit as fun as she is knowledgeable, as we explore the Royal Ontario Museum.
