Mineralientage München / The Munich Show (2009-2018)

2019 - Whoever collects makes history

This year's theme of the special exhibition is '' Whoever collects makes history ''. In the course of this, important collections from the past to the present were exhibited. Representing the passion for collecting Alpine minerals, great pieces from the collections of the ETH Zurich, Paul Membrini, the Curschellas family, Lukas von Känel and myself were exhibited. In order to present the history of collecting, the collections have been arranged chronologically.

At this point I would like to thank everyone involved for the trust and great help without which this excellent exhibition would not have been possible.

2018 - Elements

The Munich Show 2018 was all about the elements.

A special joy and honour for me as I was allowed to be in charge of the organization of the Alpine Special Show.

The area for the special show has been redesigned and divided into the elements silicon, titanium and fluorine.

Quartz in all its forms and colours from all over the Alps has been exhibited as a representative of silicon. Titanite, Anatase, Brookite and Rutile represented the element titanium. Fluorites from Austria, France and Switzerland in all colours and sizes were in the fluorine range to admire.

At this point I would also like to thank all of you who have trusted me with your wonderful pieces for the special show.
