Dear friends of MINERALIS Berlin,

the corona crisis continues to be a challenge for us. We confidently look ahead to the next minerals, fossils and jewelry exchange in Berlin in autumn 2022.

We cordially invite you and look forward to seeing you again from November 18-20, 2022 at the Berlin Exhibition Center under the radio tower.

Sincerely, your MINERALIS team

A hobby turned into a profession


Our holiday luggage has always included a rock pick and a chisel. Be it quartz, calcite or mineral ore, the Pfundt family began collecting minerals more than 50 years ago. There were deposits in Germany on slag heaps and in surface mines in the Harz region, in the Bavarian Fichtelgebirge, in the Black Forest, in the Hunsrück region. But other destinations like the islands of Elba, Sardinia and Corsica also provided natural treasures of stone. Amethyst, rock crystal, agate and rose quartz – our collection grew such that we almost had a little “mine”. Besides our own collecting activity, we also started attending mineral shows outside of Berlin.

The idea to set up such a sales exhibition / trade fair in Berlin was put into operation in 1975; what was then the Congress Hall in Berlin-Tiergarten was rented. After its collapse in 1980, the Berlin Minerals, Fossils and Jewellery Show switched to the exhibition halls under the Berlin Radio Tower. The exhibition is organised by Doris Pfundt with the support of all her family members.

THis Months Zodiac Stone: 23.11. – 21.12. Sagittarius - Chalcedon

Chalcedony protects its wearer against fatigue and melancholy and liberates one from chronic discontent. The Tibetans compare the stone with the beauty of a lotus blossom. It sparks joy and charm, and drives melancholy away. The chalcedony gives the Sagittarius energy and quells exam anxiety.
