During Crystal Days, the GEOzone will be created for the first time in Poland! It will be one of the central attractions of the event. There will be a number of stands (available free of charge) dedicated to the biggest geotouristic attractions of the Lower Silesia. On each of them you will find a presentation of a given attraction (for example: mine, museum, geopark etc.), as well as games or educational workshops related to geology – for children and adults.
One of the main attractions of GEOzone in 2019 will be the unique, huge, meteorite “Memors” from Poland, weighing 261 kg! This giant found in Morasko is one of the biggest known meteorites from Europe. The Morasko meteorite belongs to the group of iron meteorites, it consists mainly of iron (93%) and nickel 6.5%). It fell between 4100 and 2700 BC, near Poznań, and was discovered in 1914. The “Memors” was excavated in 2012. Meteorite “Memors” will be presented at the educational stand of Museum of the Earth at Adam Mickiewicz University (in cooperation with Jakub Sauermann).
