Plumbogummite
November 9th
Plumbogummite -  One dealer at the Munich show had specimens of this interesting find of plumbogummite coating both quartz and mimetite.  These come from the Yangshuo Pb-Zn mine, Yangshuo, Guangxi Zhuang, China.  These first showed up at the Sainte Marie show this past summer.


Topaz & Orthoclase

Fluorite

Spessartine on Quartz
November 9th
Chinese minerals -  Lots of interesting things here from Fujian and also new Topaz specimens from Baoshan in Yunnan Province.



Barite
November 9th
New Find - Barite -  The same dealer who had the plumbogummite also had quite a few specimens of a new find of barite from Ganzhou.  Most of the specimens had serious damage issues but I did find a half dozen that were in pretty good shape.  These specimens have a interesting habit with exaggerated prism face and pinacoid face development.  Almost no pyramid faces are found on these very lustrous crystals.



Inesite
November 9th
Inesite -  KARP had a nice group of these inesite specimens from the Fengjiashan Mine.  This mine was noted for producing the new mineral hubeite a few years ago. It is now closed and specimens of inesite are becoming as hard to find as the good ones from Kuruman in South Africa. Ten specimens in all.


Pyrite

Realgar
November 9th
Miscellaneous Chinese Minerals -  This is a large group of specimens from China all found at the 2005 Munich Show.



Powellite
November 7th
Included Powellite -  Wilke Minerals had three specimens of green colored powellite - all included with celadonite. These are brightly fluorescent under SW UV light.


Aquamarine & Calcite!
Pakistan

Dioptase
Reneville

Erythrite
Morocco
November 7th
Munich Show specimens -  This isa random group of specimens found at the show - 25 specimens in all - some common and some quite unusual!


Stilbite on Chalcedony
November 7th
New Find - Stilbite on Chalcedony Stalactites from India -  Several dealers had these specimens available but I found only two from Superb Minerals that had complete stalactites.  A lot of people grabbed these up at the show but I think these were two of the best there based on what I saw in terms of their sculpted appearance.


Italian Wulfenite

November 7th
Wulfenite-  German dealer Ulrich Burchard had several specimens of wulfenite from various localities that were from the Erberto Tealdi Collection.  I found several seldom seen locality pieces such as Bergamo, Italy and Bad Ems, Germany.


Fluorite

November 7th
New Find - Fluorite from Mongolia -  KARP had specimens of fluorite from a new find in Mongolia.  Anything from Mongolia is tough to find at shows and though these are not award winning specimens of fluorite they are from a new locality.


Fersmite

Nagyagite
November 7th
Rarities -  I found several interesting rare minerals at the show - recall the specimen of warikahnite from Tsumeb in the second report.  That specimen is sold already but there were some others that are posted here.  Nagyagite, fersmite, schiavinatoite, rynersonite and panunzite (from Dr. Achille Panunzi) comprise this group of rare species.


Petalite

Ruby Spinel

Phenakite

November 7th
Burmese Gem Crystals -  Several dealers including Francois Lietard and KARP had specimens of phenakite from Burma and also some random rarities such as hambergite and petalite.  I found two incredible specimens of twinned ruby spinel that have to be seen to be believed! 


Silver

November 7th
German Silver -  German dealer Fachhandel and Versand had scores of fluorite specimens from German localities and also the best silver specimens from Pohla mine of anyone at the show.  The silver is etched from the encasing arsenic to reveal stunning herring bone habit crystal groups.  These are not new to the mineral world but the quality is as good as it gets - worth it to get a few of these!



Barite

November 7th
Peruvian Barite -  These were first seen at the Sainte Marie show this past summer however they were one of the significant new items at Munich. LuisMiguel had an attractive array of new barite specimens from Cerro Warihuyn, Mir Aflores Huamlalias, Huanuco, Peru.  They attracted a lot of attention by dealers as soon as they were placed on the table for view and quite a few were scooped up.  I managed to get my hands on seven choice specimens from this find.  Another dealer had these also in Hall A4 but the quality was significantly less than that offered by Luis.



Chondrodite
November 7th
Chondrodite from Afghanistan -  Francois Lietard had some exceptional specimens of chondrodite on matrix from this recent find in Afghanistan.  You may recall that Dudley Blauwet had specimens available from here at the Springfield Show - mostly loose crystals.  Francois' selection was better and reflected a significant moderation of prices of this interesting mineral.
