I am collecting every mineral of the year since 2012, and I have not found anything on last year's mineral. Thank you.

Based on the following from IMA. Their MOY will be announced in spring:

Each spring, CNMNC is electing a “Mineral of the Year”. For 2022, this award has been assigned to lazaraskeite. The mineral was discovered in the area of Oro Valley, north of Tucson, Pima County, Arizona, USA.

We do already have a Mineral Cup winner from 2023: Zircon.
