The Institute of the Mineral World (Institut du monde minéral) will hold its first show event in the Principality on December 16 and 17, from 10 am to 6 pm, at which the public will be able to discover a large selection of raw stones (minerals and collectible crystals), stones cut to make to mount (gems), original and unique jewels in natural stones and precious metals, carved and polished stones (spheres, statuettes, various objects), fossils and meteorites.

Previously held in French cities such as Paris, Cannes and Montpellier, this year’s edition brings together 60 exhibitors from Pakistan, Morocco, Spain, Madagascar, Italy, Belgium, Germany and Mexico.

Monaco also will share their passion with the public and offer real wonders: fossils dating back 500 million years with coins (giant ammonites, dinosaur bones, reptiles etc ..), crystals from around the world, infinitely colourful minerals, shells, jewels, fascinating precious stones and rare gems.

An exceptional free lottery will allow visitors every hour to win many prizes, from dinosaur teeth to (and for the first time) a diamond. In addition, 3,000 free entry tickets will be distributed in various establishments in the Principality, valid for two days with a gift of a necklace with a real fossil shark tooth dating back 135 million years from the phosphate quarries of southern Morocco.

Entrance to the show at the Grimaldi Forum will be €6 and free for children under 7.
