Last Updated: 25th Jun 2015

By Jolyon & Katya Ralph

I've just finished the first day at the Ste Marie-aux-mines show in France - Here are a few quick photos.

Where everyone meets...

Mineral displays (Crystal Classics, UK)

Mineral displays (Astier Minerals, France)

Vivianite from Brazil (Crystal Classics)

Jeff Scovil set up in the dungeon below the theatre taking mineral photos

Nick Carruth with a selection of antique mining lamps

Mineral dealers in the swimming pool!

A very small part of the special exhibit - Alpine minerals. Incredible!

More when I get back and can do a more detailed report!
