Emanuele Marini     

Emanuele Marini is the proprietor of Geomineral Service International and Demineralia, a primarily web-based mineral dealership at He first became interested in minerals at the age of 10 when his mother took him to collect on an old mine dump; soon he was bringing home dozens of kilograms of specimens from a wide range of different localities. Annual vacations to Sardinia became three-week collecting excursions at local mines instead of seaside recreation. His rapidly accumulating stock of specimens threatened to outgrow his family's home, located about 10 km from Milan, Italy. There was no alternative but to become a part-time mineral dealer, in order to dispose of the duplicate specimens and also to raise money for the purchase of additional high-quality specimens for his collection. He also began buying small lots of high-quality specimens so that he could keep a favorite piece and resell the rest to cover the cost. He has opened a website for mineral sales, as mentioned above,and he has had sales tables at the major European mineral shows for the last three years.

All of this has been accomplished while Emanuele has been attending college; he will soon graduate with a degree in Ore Geology and Industrial Minerals. He plans to continue his mineral business following graduation.
