Is time to start the thread of Munich Show 2011...

The first novelty is the web page of the Show ( https://mineralientage.de/en/ ) that has been totally rebuilt with a lot of new improvements, so it deserves a visit.
As an example, you can visit this attractive new display with the list of exhibitors and its emplacement on the show with a appealing visual design -> https://mineralientage.de/en/mineralworld/public-days/exhibitordirectory/

I add also a promotional video with an introduction of the main exhibit of this year, "European Classics"

And the banner of "Mineralworld".

The Show is divided in four sections and four pavilions:
Mineralworld (minerals and mineralogy)
Gemworld (gems & fine jewellery)
Fossilworld (fossils)
Stoneworld (design and accesories related with rocks)

not necessary mention which section is my favorite! ;-)

To me, the Munich Show should rank on an equal status, if not better than Tucson's main show at the Convention Center. The exhibits area is very creative in its design - and it is usually a new design every year! Also, one of the features I like best is that there are no satellite shows, so the evenings are for winding down and having a good dinner with friends.

Susan, we'd agree. While we love the displays at the TGMS Show, Munich is now our favorite. Excellent variety, infrastructure and activities within the show, plus no need for a car or even to stay out near the messe. Munich's excellent public transit system makes it easy to go between the city center and the show in about 20 minutes, so we always stay in the old city where we can enjoy the restaurants, markets and nightlife with ease.

So if Gail is not going to München - who else will make a 1000-photo-report for FMF?! ;-)

THE question! ;-)

I hope that all FMFers will do the same as they did it past year -> https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewtopic.php?t=1385
Please FMFers replace the irreplaceable, and cover the non 1000 Gail's photos with your own photos and vision of the Show!

I will be there with Camera in hand, not that I will get to the 1000 photo mark, although I will post a few. Should be a great time!

I'm affraid I can't come. It is one day driving, but I can tell you that the conrector isn't giving me a day off. I hope to be there next year. So I'm giving you advice: Have fun and a good time in München!

P.S. What a lovely Kongsberg silver, looks just a tree!

Mark

The preparation of the Fair is ending and gradually began the exodus to Munich so it's time to start to talk about minerals ;-)

To my knowledge, it seems that the iron mines of Huanggang, in Inner Mongolia, China, will be again one of the stars of the show. They did it the past year with its exceptional Ilvaites and it seems that also this year will offer some exciting novelties.

We'll see...

I am looking forward to confirming the hedenbergites, dodecahedral magnetites from this new find. As well as the yellow and green andradites. Please, keep us up the date, if possible

Best wishes

There is definitely Hedenbergite from there. I will post some photos of specimens I just got on my collection thread sometime today (I need to measure them). My friend just returned and will be having many more novelties soon, including datolite specimens, many garnets and fluorites. I will not have any of these for a few weeks, as they are still on the boat from China.

Bob,

Please publish your fine photos (or others) in this thread too. I believe It will help to complete the news about some of the Inner Mongolia's new stuff...

Thank you!

Munich 10/24/2011

Already in Munich. As the photos shows, the weather here is superb, and they announce the same good weather along the Show excepting Friday that it seems it will rain.

Enjoying Bavaria!

More to come....

Munich 27/10/2011

My life in the fairs has become so difficult that I can not do daily chronicles as I would like to do. Too many things to do, very few hours to sleep, so for me it is really impossible to publish more than this post and another at the end of the Fair, at my return to Barcelona. All those who will attend Munich please publish their impressions as soon as you can and if with images, even better. Then we could give those who can not attend the Show, a "live" vision of the Fair.

Yesterday was the day of preparation that is always a big mess, as the photos shows. As for minerals, there is more news than usual in recent times, and among them is, as expected, the iron mines of Huanggangliang, Kèshíkèténg Qi, Chifeng, Inner Mongolia, China, in which by now I would highlight, besides the already known Ilvaites and Arsenopyrites, gigantic Hedenbergites (well formed crystals over 20 cm.!), pretty octahedral pink Fluorites on matrix, Rhodonites, that in some cases may also be gigantic, excellent prase Quartz, Fluorites like Dalnjegorsk colorless and gemmy but with a complex crystallography, Datolites ... and much more that I believe will appear in a short future.

In the opinion of many, these mines will be a new source of great specimens with a lot of exciting surprises.

More to come...
