Mineralogical Museum Grou

Minerals and rocks are the most important building stones of the earth we live on. Most crystals are very small; we need a magnifying glass or a microscope to study them. Sometimes larger crystals form. Crystals we can easily see. And admire! What a splendid world unfolds before our eyes! What magnificent colours and shapes do we see! Beautiful clear quartz crystals, geodes with deep purple amethyst crystals, pink roselite from Morocco, etc. Come and admire the splendid minerals, arranged in 40 showcases!
