Mineralsalen - Calcit

Mineral Hall

Permanent exhibition

The exhibition comprises two large halls and two smaller rooms - a total of more than 300 m2. The major part of the two halls is occupied by the systematic exhibition, where the minerals are presented in a crystal chemical order starting with elements such as gold and silver and ending with silicates such as feldspar and zeolites.

To this must be added thematic exhibits about famous Greenland occurrences, zeolites and calcite from Iceland and the Faeroe Islands, silver from Kongsberg, Baltic amber and a small display of precious stones.
