M is for Minerals

These stunning stamps were sent by Eric a couple of years ago.

They feature the minerals gold, sulphur, labradorite and fluorite.



The stamps were issued as part of a 12-stamp set by La Poste in 2016 titled The Mineral World.

  1. How coincidental that I have sent a stamp with a mineral (quartz) in one of the two postcards from Morocco that, I'm afraid, are still in their way...!

  2. Beautiful stamps! My late grandmother collected stones / minerals and I think thanks to her I love to see stones - even common ones are special :-)

    1. By the way, I think this collection is a delight for the founder of Sunday Stamps (if I remember well, she once wrote she likes minerals but/and minerals on stamps are hard to find)

    2. I think the way they are displayed against the white has a striking effect.

  3. Wow, these mineral stamps are fascinating!
    Croatia has some great mineral stamps issued, so for the founder of Sunday Stamps, I may have it on my list for my next trip, I would just need the address :)

  4. I like how these are presented as little statuettes.

  5. As I studied geology as part of my university course I found this stamps fascinating - I even recognised some of the minerals.

  6. Love the combination of typeface and mineral, beautiful colours. Look like they could be awards for 'best in show'.
