There is a label over the Chrysoberyl. So I think about 10 cm. I remember I was really impressed during my visit in Munich! By the way I love this thread - brings back best memories........

Hi John,
It’s a Preggi’s specimen. The labels are 75 mm, I think.
This would give a size of the chrysoberyl close to 15 cm wide.
What do you think Gerhard ?
I have seen greatest specimens in Munich Show (1989) provided from Brazil by Roger Titeux. The biggest was broken into 2 pieces (about 27 cm). It lies in a Paris museum. The second measured 22 cm. It was shaped like a triangle with its single twin. It should also be kept in France.
Roger.

Yes Tobi good stuff. But we see that many of that 'good stuff' is recycled and is used in several show reports before. What is wrong with these specimens or are they simply to much overpriced?

Yes Peter. But there is one advantage: you can visit the show on the last day. I myself often photographed the same specimens in Munich and Ste Marie.
These minerals need to be watched several times.

Yep.
These are not good enough for the "Nouveau Riche Elite" , but look (and are!) extremely overpriced to us average to advanced collectors. So they will stay on the shelves for a long, long, long time...
There is absolutely NO shortage of even very good specimens!
Speculation of a few keeps the prices high, but others may have a different opinion...

Barcelona 22/11/2015

I finish my participation in this thread of Munich 2015 but before I want to thank all those involved for their contributions and remember that the thread is still open to all who want to contribute with more images or comments.
As a farewell I upload these mixed pictures, most of them taken by Jordi Deusedes.

See you in Munich 2016!

Having grown up in San Diego and collected at the Little Three Mine, I would not place any money on the Topaz https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/download.php?id=62382 being from there. The color and matrix are completely wrong for the location.

Hi,
Do you recognize the color of this Topaz from Little Three Mine, Ramona?
You say: “The color and matrix are completely wrong”.

The photos are always difficult to take, because if the specimens are all exceptional, showcases are not ideal. These black boxes are provided with an apical lighting. The white balance is not obvious.
There is no matrix on this specimen, but only a quartz crystal.
