The Faculty of Science of the University of Salamanca held this new edition with novelties and exhibitors coming from all over Spain.

The IV Mineral Fair has been celebrated in the Faculty of Science of the University of Salamanca, during the weekend. A very waited for meeting, considering the great demand at previous editions and the participants of this one. This time the fair had a number of novelties and an exhibition of 500 varieties in display shelves, coming from different parts of Spain. Among the activities that made part of this fair has been the continuous projection of videos on geology, games, talks and the mineral raffle, customary of each edition.

In addition, workshops such as “Minerals in our lives”, “Phytoplankton, the forests of the ocean”, “Minerals under the microscope”, “3D Relief”, “The skin of the Earth: this is how you make a geological map”, “Ornamental Stones of Castile and Leon” and “Fossils! The stones that had life”.

At the inauguration of the fair I was accompanied by the dean of the Faculty of Science, José Miguel Mateos Roco, and the organizer of the Fair, Mercedes Suárez Barrios.
