Description
top

Every year, during the second weekend of September ,
the Circle of Mineralogy and Paleontology of Belgium organizes in Brussels the International Minerals and Fossils Show with an important foreign participation.

It is more than one hundred exhibitors coming from the whole world,
spread on 600m of table in 1200 sq meters of the mezzanine of one of the most beautiful old car museum.
It is also about 3000 visitors.

NB : Like most of the Shows, statistically we have counted amongs the booths (see also : Le "blues des bourses aux minéraux et aux fossiles" by Philippe Cooreman and Collectionner les minraux en 2009 by Michel Deliens) :

    • 45 % of jeweleries and some sellers precious or semi-precious cutted stones,
    • 33 % of minerals ( sales, no exchanges),
    • 9% of tools, boxes,...useful for our hobby,
    • 8 % of "verroterie" ( artefacts, glass, lithotherapy,...),
    • 5 % of fossils
