And the second video of the exhibit "Alpine", which at the same time is the most brutal of them all ;-)

Though I no hablo español, I've been browsing the Spanish thread for several days and I highly recommend it! Who needs to understand the words when you have such images! :-)

I have to say that I prefer images over videos - no need to watch the whole video to see the one specimen you like, you just scroll and stop when you see one you like.

PostPosted: Nov 04, 2018 18:32    Post subject: Munich Show (Mineralientage) 2018 - The New Discoveries  

Barcelona 11/05/2018

As it has been seen in the great report of Carles Manresa, this Show continues with the usual trend of not presenting a large number of new discoveries (although in reality there is always more than it seems ;-)
As this has been happening for some time and it seems that progressively is increasing, the balance is changing and many collectors are not going to the Shows so much "for new discoveries" but to find recycled specimens that fit their desires. The offer of pieces of collections that have been put on sale is being higher than the appearance of new discoveries and therefore in the main displays are seeing many more classics than new discoveries.

That said, what I saw or knew as a new discovery in this Munich 2018 was:

- Lovely yellow Fluorites from a small mine, Four de Cluzel, satellite of the well known Peyrebrune Mine in Tarn, Occitanie, France, and which was not known until now more than by local collectors. The works of a small group of searchers have given an exceptional result with the find of very intense yellow color Fluorites and with a large crystal size, often associated with Quartz and occasionally by Barite crystals coated with Quartz.

- After the novelty in Tucson of the Alpine Quartzes of the Kullu District, Himachal Pradesh, India (see https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewtopic.php?p=60976#60976 ) we have now seen in Munich a new batch of very transparent and large Quartzes with delicate inclusions of Rutile. We will have to pay attention to what this area of India will continues to supply.

- From the Democratic Republic of Congo in the Likasi mine has been found very good Gerhardtites and Buttgenbachites of which you can see an example in this video: https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewtopic.php?p=64577#64577

- The biggest source of news of the recent years is being Morocco and although Munich is not the main Show of minerals from that country, there were several new things. To highlight what has recently been found in new shafts recently opened in the Aït Ahmane Mine: large Barite crystals partially coated by white Actinolite, large groups of transparent crystals of Quartz with Calcite, in some cases with clear crystals of Sphalerite of yellow-reddish color, and also isolated crystals with good size of Calcite sometimes associated to Djurleite.
Among what is not so new but recent, it should be pointed out that the Malachite-Azurites from El Fetch continue to appear, that extraordinary Roselites have been found recently in Agoudal, and that Bou Nahas, indefatigably, continues to produce excellent Barytes, Pyrites, Marcasites, Chalcopyrites and all kind of carbonates, and to this we must add the recent find there of colored Sphalerites that, at the moment, do not appear in sharp crystals.

- Finally, Spain offered a novelty that is not really new ;-) and which I will talk about later when I have definitive analytical results. Sorry for not being able to specify more now but I did not want to stop mentioning it in this column although it may or may not come in depending on what the analysis confirm (or not ;-)

Hi,
I arrive late to talk about the Munich Show2018, because I had to prepare the Intermineral Show of Liege 2018 (Nov 3 & 4).
I have excellent memories of the Munich Show.
Above all, one had to go to Munich to admire the "Sondershow Elemente".
While in previous years, the exhibition theme was held in an alcove, this year it was open to everyone.
The expo was dedicated to the elements, pure of course, but also included in original chemical combinations.

My illusion's shattered! ;-)

The "novelty" was a large batch of Tetrahedrites from the classic Spanish mine of El Coriellu in which the "novelty" was that, against to the known before, they were labeled as pseudomorphized by "Cuproroméite" since it was said that there was an analysis that pointed out this.
This analysis should be wrong because as you can see in the always extraordinary report of Dr. César Menor there does not seem to be any trace of the "Cuproroméite" on the two samples from that lot that I sent to him.

As with most major shows in recent years, much of what was on offer at Munich this year were recycled collections and specimens from already well-known locations rather than much that was truly new. New, at least to me, were the fluorites from Sicily, and while not exactly a new locality, there were some very nice fluorites from Cantera Llamas, Asturias, which I understand were found this year.

Thanks to Carles Manresa we got the right provenance. Is Shigar Valley, I already applied it to your photo.

PostPosted: Dec 02, 2018 08:09    Post subject: Munich Show (Mineralientage) 2018 - A lifetime  

A lifetime... I've been living with minerals all my life, going to the Shows, assembling stands, dismantling stands, and, like me, so have many other dealers.

I wish to finish my chronicles of the Munich Show with a small tribute to all my colleagues, the dealers, who year after year, like snails, carry their homes on their backs with all those treasures that light up in the Shows, as the modest ‘rocks’, which for us were also treasures when we began to collect.

The vast majority of mineral dealers were collectors and / or mineral hunters before dedicating themselves to the business and, believe it or not, the vast majority of us still have a gleam in our eyes when we see an exceptional (or very rare) piece, and not for financial reasons...😉

A warm thanks to James Catmur for your help correcting my English text

Farewell to Munich with this photo of Christi Cramer (Mineralogical Record) in full action.

Mineral magazines are a very important part of our hobby because in addition to the knowledge they provide, they really synthesize the different visions: that of collectors, dealers, and scientists.
