EUROMINERALS TORINO 2017

Last Updated: 13th Oct 2017

By Achille Sorlini

EUROMINERALS TORINO is arrived to the 46th edition.
The fair hosts more than 200 dealers, coming from Italy, Europe, India and South America.
Minerals, fossils (not italian, it's forbidden), jewelry and a lot of other stuff.
The site is a former olympic building (ice hockey stadium), today is a "multitasking" place for concerts, theatre or fairs.

EUROMINERALS TORINO 2017- inside view


My short photo reportage has avoided to take pictures of "international minerals".
There were a lot of stuff coming from India, China and East Asia: you can find it in a lot of other fairs in the world.
So I only took pictures of minerals from my region, nw alps, all mountains surrounding my city.
Most of them are garnets, epidotes, vesuvianites, quartz or rare microminerals.

First a look at the first floor, where you can find some thematic display cases.

Old samples from Traversella mine, closed in 1973 and today a touristic site: Scheelite and Amethyst Quartz found in a single pocket in 1957.
