Presentation for those who don't know me yet, my name is Mickaël Zaupa, 39 years old, father of two children and living in the Toulouse area.
Originally from the Hautes-Pyrénées, I started my field research on various deposits during walks. Above all I am a nature lover in all its forms, and I quickly fell in love with minerals.
I was lucky enough to meet a precursor of local mineralogy, who allowed me to make my first real discoveries in the flysch of the Basque country in search of window quartz. I concentrated my research there for 15 years. At that time I really had a revelation. I then tried to diversify in various departments : Pyrénées Atlantiques, Tarn, Aveyron, Ariège, Gard, Isère and so on.
I quickly turned to inclusion quartz, a subject that still fascinates me and on which I try to gather a representative panel for my personal pleasure.
Prospector for 20 years now, I created my company "Mineral Origins" a little more than a year ago by proposing personal finds but also alpine minerals, if possible French, and from abroad selected with attention.
My specialty is quartz but I will also present other species for the pleasure of variety.
