The Wonderful World of Minerals

25th and 26th March 2016

The fair will be held in the auditorium of the BGCA, 3 Lockhart Road, conveniently situated in the heart of Wanchai, with easy access by MTR and other public transport, as well as having nearby bars and restaurants.  There will be minerals, fossils, books and equipment for sale, and some beautiful minerals just to look at, with activities for all the family.

When: Friday and Saturday 25th and 26th March 2016, 10 am to 7 pm

Where: The Auditorium, 1/F the BGCA Building, 3 Lockhart Road, Wanchai

Transport: There is no public parking at the venue, but it is well served by public transport. Take the MTR to Wanchai station, exit C, and follow the signs to the Mineral Fair (about 5 minutes’ walk)

What is the attraction of minerals? For some it is the wonderful symmetry of naturally occurring crystals, their colour and beauty, for some it is contemplating how minerals form, such as the extreme conditions of huge values of temperature and pressure existing where diamonds are born, deep in the mantle of the earth.

Fossil collectors are intrigued by the strange creatures that existed in geological time, leaving their imprints in the rocks for us to marvel at. The stories that these fossils tell of how our earth developed and how different it was aeons ago make strange reading indeed.

Start with picking up a few attractive looking stones, and you will soon be drawn into the fascinating world of the collector.

Advice for Exhibitors

If you are an experienced exhibitor then you will know what works for you. If you are new to exhibiting we offer the following advice:

Label all your specimens with the name of the mineral and the locality, if known. 

Put a price on all your specimens, even if you are willing for purchasers to negotiate. 


Have minerals in different price brackets, some cheap ones for children who are starting a collection and some collector’s pieces for the connoisseur.
 

If you are selling equipment or books, have some large mineral or fossil specimens to make your display more eye-catching.


Have some packing material available for the specimens which you sell.
 

We ask that any minerals which have been dyed or otherwise artificially treated are clearly labeled to that effect.
