The Collection of Rocks and Minerals

Once the basic exhibition has been opened, the exhibition circuit also introduces the permanent exhibition “Collection of rocks and minerals of Oltenia Museum”. The permanent exhibition “Collection of rocks and minerals” presents 200 samples of the most valuable pieces of the collection of minerals and rocks within the Natural Sciences patrimony.

The pieces, coming from Romania and other countries, are exhibited systematically, per classes of minerals and types of rocks.

The exhibits are impressive due to the form and size of some minerals, “crystal clusters” (quartz, calcite, stibine, baritine), the rarity of others (native copper), all of them enhanced by the special lighting system. The atmosphere is completed by pieces of music perfectly suited for such an environment.
