30th Lithos Mineral Fair - Harelbeke

Last Updated: 4th Dec 2017

By Tom Costes

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

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!

We’re having a live showing of the live report... let’s call it report-ception

A rare sight: a show organiser that has time to have his own booth - Luc Verfaillie

A pseudo-cubic amethyst from Ambohimasina, Madagaskar - Cyriel Matthé

One of those collectors that sell here is Dorsan Van Poele. Let’s take a look at what he’s got

A great Strengite from Moncorvo, Portugal. If you’re interested in Minerals from Portugal, then he’s your guy - Dorsan Van Poele

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.

Nautilus-Gent, the dociety from Ghent, is here too with their shop - Dirk Van Brande and Etienne Martens

A lovely transparent baryte with sphalerite from Androvo Mine, Bulgaria - Coll. Dr. Raymond Dedeyne

A LOT of great micro’s - Patrick Corthals

There is a hallway between 2 rooms where there are some lovely drawing from minerals done by the local art academy

Dome more

Last ones

Interesting ugly mineral time - hummerite from the Hummer Mine, Colorado, USA - Pierre Rosseel

An old but important minerological work from Gemany - Herwig Pelckmans

And now it is time to say goodbye... I promise I will be quiet now until February.

I was here as well !! "Proficiat" Tom ! as we say locally....
More seriously, indeed a special show entirely free for the exhibitors and for the visitors.
Very interesting as there are true collectors showing their own findings for exchange or at very low price.
Lots of fossils !!
