As promised last week... We’re back and this time we’re in Harelbeke in the northern part of Belgium. This fair is quite large (for Belgium) and is very interesting due to the large ammount of collectors that are selling and it is one of the coziest get together of mineralogy and paleontology in Belgium. Let me be you digital guide for today!

This is actually more a very friendly being-together with minerals than a mineral fair... That’s why the other society’s from Belgium have a booth too... Here’s the booth from the ACAM where they analyse your minerals.
