Minerals, Fossils, Gemstones - Treasures Shaped by Nature

Mineralien Hamburg 2019

Our earth offers an incredible variety of stones: minerals and  gemstones, fossils as witnesses  of bygone times, and even rocks  from space - they can all be seen in Hamburg.

At Northern Europe’s  largest trade fair for minerals and  jewellery, around 400 exhibitors present their unique pieces, who are greeted  with great enthusiasm from experts, enthusiasts and interested  parties alike.

In addition to browsing, buying and informing, there is also fun for the whole family waiting at the many stations of  the “Discovery Hall”.  And in keeping with the pre-Christmas season,  you will find beautiful treasures for every budget.
