Juni 2022 - Nach mittlerweile zwei Jahren coronabedingter Zwangspause fand im Jahr 2022 wieder die Mineralienbörse in Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines statt. Es gab keinerlei Einschränkungen für die Besucher und manchmal hatte man das Gefühl, dass der ganze Spuk der letzten beiden Jahre nur ein böser Traum gewesen wäre. Wenn man früh genug in Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines ankommt, gibt es noch Parkmöglichkeiten in der Stadt (hier wird jeder m2 angeboten der möglich ist). Die Preisspanne lag in diesem Jahr zwischen 6 und 10 €. Natürlich kann man auch die Parkplätze außerhalb von Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines mit dem kostenlosen Busshuttle nutzen. Besonders gespannt war ich auf Neufunde und die Preisentwicklung seit meinem letzten Besuch in Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines... Ein Bericht von Andreas B. (Hg)

Nevertheless, in the past, evil itself is said to have preached to the damned here from a large, solitary, towering rock spur. Today, the term Devil's Pulpit inspires one to play with associations, as do the drawings of agates found here. Their fantastic outlines, coupled with the unusual shape of the secondary rock, evoke images in the viewer that he would not have suspected in a stone. And on the devil's pulpit no longer an evil demon is waiting for the agate collector, but other executive powers threatening with purgatory... a contribution by Klaus Schäfer and others (in german)

Ich verbrachte sie hauptsächlich im schweizerischen Binntal, wo ich bei dem einheimischen Strahler Andre Gorsatt quasi „ in die Lehre gehen“ durfte. Ich reinigte und formatierte Fundstücke, begleitete zuerst die Strahlerexkursionen, die Andre Gorsatt anbot und durfte in Folge auch eigene Führungen leiten. Es mag an meinem Habitus von einem Drittel Athlet und zwei Dritteln Pykniker gelegen haben, dass ich in der Hauptsache für die Familien- und Senioren-Führungen vorgesehen wurde...

This will prob­a­b­ly be the short­est show re­port of the Mu­nich Min­er­al Days ev­er. We could now re­port about the low­er ex­hibi­tor num­bers, which had to be omitt­ed due to Coro­na, or vis­i­tor num­bers, which were to be ex­pect­ed for the same rea­son.

We could now report about the lower exhibitor numbers, which had to be omitted due to Corona, or visitor numbers, which were to be expected for the same reason. We could report that the show was quieter, but still very successful for many dealers. We could report that the conversations between dealers and customers were much more intense this year and the atmosphere was very good. We could tell that the show management did a great job under the conditions. However, we do not have to do all this.

Little Rumi (6) has drawn all this much better and more exciting in a picture for us.

I don’t think there’s much you can add to that.
