Museum of Mineralogy / Gem Collection

The Collection is entirely displayed inside the original glass case from the 19th century, being one of the main attractions of the Museum. There can be admired a large variety of natural minerals used in the manufacturing of ornaments, along with some synthetic products (glass, synthetic spinel, etc.) and organic substances (coral, pearls). Of the precious stones, there are diamonds, sapphires and rubies (from India, Sri Lanka, USA), emeralds (Brasil); the fine stones are represented especially by granats, tourmaline, quartz varieties (amethyst, citrine, rock crystal, agate, etc.) and opal (noble, fire), spinels, turquoise, etc.
