Mineral Talks LIVE
Do you want a more personal, in-depth connection with some of the most fascinating people in the mineral world? Then tune in to Mineral Talks LIVE - the monthly LIVE interview series where we sit down with guests from all over the world and talk rocks. Collectors, Curators, Curatrixes, Artists, Researchers, Publishers, Dealers and more. We get into their origin stories and get updated on some of the things they're working on now. It's always fun, often educational and one of the best ways to learn more about the people who make the mineral world what it is.

Tune in on the first Wednesday of every month, listen to our LIVE talks and get a chance to ask our guests your own questions. It's one of the best and exciting new ways to keep us all connected in-between our normal mineral shows.

Mineral Talks LIVE - Brought to you by Dr. Raquel Alonso-Perez of The Mineralogical and Geological Museum at Harvard University (MGMH), Dr. Eloïse Gaillou of l’École des Mines de Paris, and The Society of Mineral Museums Professionals (SMMP) and Bryan Swoboda of BlueCap Productions.

Roy Starkey
Writer and field mineral collector
Roy Starkey became interested in minerals at an early age but growing up in the South of England (Cretaceous chalk) provided few opportunities to go field collecting. Roy has been an active member of The Russell Society and in 1981 he founded the British Micromount Society. He was inducted into the Micromounters Hall of Fame in 2005 in recognition of his support for the micromounting hobby. More recently Roy has self-published: Crystal Mountains – Minerals of the Cairngorms, Minerals of the English Midlands and most recently Making it Mine – Sir Arthur Russell and his Mineral Collection. In 2017 Roy was winner of the first Marsh Award for Mineralogy, in recognition of his huge contribution to the field of mineralogy and is currently a Scientific Associate at the Natural History Museum, London
