Minerals, cristals, gems, meteorites and other rocks

Almost every country has issued postal stamps featuring minerals illustrating their mineralogy. As an avid collector of both stamps and minerals, I have gathered many minerals stamps that I am putting online for the pleasure of rockhounds, stamps collectors, geologists and other amateurs of philatelic mineralogy and mineralogic philately.

A stamp issued to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the jeweller Bulgari (BVLGARI). It features a gold and platinum necklace with diamonds, emeralds, turquoises and amethysts.

This is the first Italian stamp depicting minerals or gems.




Many thanks to Professor Grubessi Odino (GeoStamps) for sending me a mint copy of the stamp and the First Day Cover of this very beautiful stamp!
