A passion for gemstones, minerals and fossils lead to an extensive collection, elevated with the acquisition of several mines and the foundation of two museums. In the year 1992, Interprospekt AG was established to integrate various global initiatives in mining, excavation, and collecting into one parent company.
The identity of Interprospekt finds its bedrock in geology and natural history, uncovering fossils and mining minerals formed over millions of years ago.
The fossil collection represents a one-of-a-kind assemblage of world renowned fossils, as shown in the “Wyoming Dinosaur Center”, Wyoming, USA and “Sino-German Fossil & Geology Park”, Liaoning, China. Many of the fossils on display have been excavated from own quarries, and are shown in museums built near the original place of discovery. Interprospekt AG aims to educate and promote higher knowledge surrounding natural history and geological rarities, offering the leasing of single objects and/or whole exhibitions.
The mining of minerals and gemstones stretches from Mozambique to Brazil and Uruguay, where primarily agate, amethyst, aquamarine, morganite and tourmalines are mined and excavated. Within Mozambique the production of the mines focuses mainly on the excavation of Paraiba Tourmaline. These Laguna blue Tourmalines, with an increased share of copper and manganese, stand out due to their highly saturated color and brilliance.
The broad structure of Interprospekt allows for the processing of most rough stones at the original finding localities. Therefore a guarantee of excellent quality, as well as a regard for ethical aspects of mining communities, can be ensured. The sourcing from own mines, paired with an extensive gemstone collection, allows Interprospekt to meet clients in a quantitative and qualitative way, as well as providing unique stones to highly sought collectors.
Interprospekt’s crown platform is the Granada Gallery. The Gallery is curated on the basis of blending geological relevance with contemporary design objects, and modern art with the breathtaking memory of evolution. This concept greatly enhances the underlying ambitions of Interprospekt AG.
