Visit of a real mineral collector

On Monday, June 3rd, the girls and boys from the children's club "mineralinos" visit a real mineral collector. He will show minerals from his collection and tell when he found his first mineral.

The collector, a member of the Freiberger Mineralienfreunde e.V. association, tells the mineralinos how he built up his collection. This also includes specializing in a certain field of collecting. In addition the collector shows also naturally also made pictures of his excursions. Thus the children experience, which advantages and disadvantages it has to collect minerals from the homeland or far countries. Another question will be whether collecting minerals is just a hobby or whether you can even make it your profession later on? Also here the collector can tell the children a lot. The supervisors are naturally curious how many other questions the girls and boys will have to the collector.

The mineralinos meet at 15:30 at the terra mineralia cash desk in Freudenstein Castle. Further information gives the Infotheke 03731 394654 or by E-Mail under fuehrungen@terra-mineralia.de. The participation is free of charge.
