Since childhood, minerals have been an incentive for me, a source of inspiration and to some extent a refuge where I feel happy. With the passage of time that love and admiration for minerals has not stopped growing, to the point of devoting my holidays to visiting the most important mineral shows in Europe, such as Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines and Munich, and thanks to this I have been fortunate to meet some very diverse people.

One of them is Jordi Fabre, who has spent a lifetime dedicated to the mineral trade and little by little has gathered a large number of specimens that he has never been able to put up for sale due to overaccumulation of work. Being well acquainted with the situation and these specimens, I spoke with Jordi and we concluded that since he had no time to take care of what was once "Express Minerals", there was no section on his website dedicated specifically to pieces that deserved to "come to light" but that at the same time had affordable prices.

Because of all this we agreed that a series of economic pieces from Fabre Minerals‘ reserves will be offered here with the desire to reach all those interested in mineralogy and especially the younger collectors. This page will function completely autonomously, It will be managed only by myself, and will be updated as continuously as possible but without fixed dates for updates, so I recommend visiting often to see what has been added.

I hope the specimens offered are to your liking, as selected from my particular point of view, with reasonable prices and with the seal of approval of Fabre Minerals.

Very Important: For all correspondence related to specimens on this page, please contact my mail: [email protected] and not Jordi.
