About the trade show
The idea of such enterprise was born in mine mind after my several visits to England in late 1970-s. At that time mineral collecting in Poland was almost a non-existing hobby, and popular books on the subject were rare. Nevertheless, small groups of mineral collectors started to form local associations, especially in a mountainous Silesia region, southwestern Poland. Clear indications of such activities were small mineral shows in Walbrzych and Wroclaw, intended as a forum of information and specimens exchange.
My frequent visits to that Silesian shows brought me an idea of initiating similar activity in Lodz. I understood that such a plan might have been quite risky in a town located so far away from well-known Polish mineral localities. Unexpectedly the first mineral show in Lodz gathered quite a large audience and received warm reception in a local press. Evan more, the scientific community of Lodz supported mine initiative highlighting its educational importance. It is worth to mention, that this first meeting enabled several persons to get in contact and later on they established the Mineral Association united to Geography Faculty of University of Lodz. My successful start was essential for thinking of organising the more professional enterprise.
To celebrate the twentieth anniversary exchange, on 13-14 October 2002, the first newspaper was published Interstone Fair, which continues editing .. The eight color pages includes the newspaper articles on selected topics collectors, presents the profiles of collectors and exhibitors, presents national and international mineralogical locations. Market Interstone newspaper is published in a print run of five-five thousand copies by the Editorial Expresu Illustrated and is a free addition to the ticket Interstone.
