Munich Show 2017 Live Report - Sponsored by Catawiki

Last Updated: 29th Oct 2017

By Jolyon Ralph

This is a LIVE report, keep this page loaded for live updates - new images will appear as they are added.




05666800015088640186747.jpg
There is plenty of choice these days on where to buy a new mineral specimen for your collection – dealers websites, regular shows/fairs and of course on line auction sites. Catawiki falls into the last category, with a range of different minerals auctions posted each week to suit everyone’s budget or mineral specialism.

All of our auctions start at midday (CET) on Fridays and all items start at a 1 euro first bid. Our regular Mineral auction ends on Tuesday evenings each week, whilst our Premium Minerals auction ends on Thursday evenings.

Our flagship auctions are our Exclusive Minerals & Exclusive Meteorites auctions which run on a monthly basis, ending on Sunday evenings.

All of our auctions are built and managed by our Minerals Auctioneers, Trevor Boyd & Luca Esposito. They ensure the authenticity of lots and bids and are also there to solve any queries that bidders or sellers may have.
See live auctions now.


Welcome to the Munich Show Live Report



01565170015089546645670.jpg
And it’s that time of the year again to go to Munich for the “rocktoberfest”!

The Munich Mineral Show is the largest single-venue mineral event in the world. And although tonight I only have time for a brief wander into the Marienplatz as all tourists do, tomorrow the hard work of bringing you four days of live reports starts. I’m very excited that this year this report is sponsored by Catawiki - a great testament to how many of you read and take notice of what we do - thank you all!



00311650015090043541575.jpg
And here I am at the show, this is my 15th visit here so everything is very familiar by now, but it’s still exciting to wait and see what lies in wait inside... today is the final day of set up so public aren’t allowed in until tomorrow. Want a sneak peak of what’s going on? Keep watching...



08455930015090045339272.jpg

Those of us who can not go are wishing to see that report.

As always a good representation of traditional examples and latest news, including an Antarctic pyrite.

Como siempre una buena representación de ejemplares tradicionales y de ultima actualidad, incluso una pirita de Antártica.

Great photos, very interesting and diverse in minerals covered. One note: I believe the orthoclase from Madagascar has been reclassified as sanidine.

Hi Jolyon, Katia and Roman (...and anyone else I forgot?)!
Nice to know you were in Munich as well! I was there on Saturday! Once again I missed you! Marie told me you were at the show! Then I know you would like to come to Bologna next year! If so, just you have to let me know, so that we can meet one another there! And in Bologna meals are very good, but not recommended for a thinning diet!
Ok, greetings from Italy by Riccardo!
