Crystal Days (15-17th July)

The conference has been organized in conjunction with the 14th annual Lwówek Crystal Days festival. This is the biggest mineralogical event in Poland (and probably all of central Europe), over 40,000 visitors for mineral show, exhibitions, concerts, parades and entertainment.

Workshops (16-17th July)

Jeff Scovil will be running workshops on mineral photography - bring your camera and learn how to improve your mineral photography. Jolyon Ralph will be running a workshop on mindat.org, how to use it and how to contribute and improve the site.

Mineral Shows (13-17th July)

There are two mineral shows during the conference period in the town. The Town Center mineral show is a regular part of the Lwówek Crystal Days festival, it takes over the full town center, and contains rocks, gem, jewellery and mineral dealers, selling mostly inexpensive local minerals.
