Last Updated: 17th Sep 2016

By Jolyon & Katya Ralph

This is a LIVE report, keep this page loaded for live updates - new images will appear as they are added.

The 'main' show has started and I'll be doing two reports, one with the dealers and a separate report on the amazing displays.

Pat McMahan is selling his new agate book based on agates in his collection. See:

Mr Bones and Little Mr Bones

Naomi Hinds has been creating some amazing (and highly fluorescent) jewellery using the new(ish) green Mexican hyalite.

Drumming! Ok, I know you want to see some good minerals :) coming up next...

In the fluorescent room. Today is kids day. Always amusing listening in to them. One was asking if there was a stegosaurus in the fluorescent display, another announced "hey, look! It's cubular!"

Amazing asbestos, Quebec minerals - Well arranged molecules.

A quick video of the case. Sorry about the conversation in the background which is nothing to do with this display. Today is busy here!

Bob Harman, mindat regular, reading the Mineralogical Record. Wait, something is not quite right.

Some amazing smoky/amethyst sceptres from Krystal Tips Mine, Nevada - Earths Treasures specimens

Rick Kennedy explains the pentascepter!

Big north Carolina corundum - Graeber & Himes

Ajoite & Shattuckite from Ajo, Arizona - Dave Bunk specimens

Apparently some people don't understand how shark's teeth work and have to have it explained for them.

Of course one of the big problems today is that mineral specimens are all priced way out of the reach of 'normal' people. David Crawford Minerals.

Nice German halite - Weinrich minerals

Topaz from Namibia, Stonetrust

Calcite 'candy bowl' from China. Average rhodochrosite for scale reference. Collector's Edge specimens

Gerard Wagner tourmalines being sold by Collector's Edge.

Brazilian tourmaline from the above

Quartz on chrysocolla from Chile. Unique Minerals specimen

Crystal Classics have some beautiful and well- displayed cabinets.

Their layout with a darker room and well-lit cabinets looks spectacular

Great datolite etc from South Africa - Attards's Minerals

Kozoite from Japan -Alfredo Petrov specimen

Clubs and education section very busy today

Rocks and Minerals magazine

Vlad Klipov showing his lab grown Quartz

Nice tetrahedrite from Peru - Richard Shupe

Wisconsin chalcocite - Richard Shupe

Harz Manganite - Richard Shupe

Fine Nevada pyrargyrite - The Mineral Gallery specimen

Argentina and Erythrite from Cobalt, Ontario - The Mineral Gallery

I don't think that is the "average" rhodochrosite specimen next to that calcite candy bowl...
