Riches of the Earth: The Beauty of Minerals

This exhibition runs from Saturday 1 April to Saturday 7 October 2023, 10am to 4pm every day except Sundays.

Riches of the Earth reveals the beauty of minerals through the astounding forms and vibrant colours of more than a hundred carefully selected specimens from the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution Collection.

Alongside these, exquisite close-up photographs will allow visitors to appreciate tiny details of crystal form and colour. The marvellous colours and forms of these natural wonders will delight the viewer: glacial blue-green beryl, rainbow-hued opal, fiery red heulandite, lurid yellow sulphur, along with hexagonal prisms of aragonite, eccentrically fused cubes of fluorite, and needle-like crystals of Goethite.
