Introduction to Mineralogy

Put your senses to the test. Using sight, smell, touch, taste and hearing, we will show you surprising properties such as birefringence, magnetism, density or delamination, among others. An activity for young and old alike in which you can touch all sorts of minerals (sulphur, halite, talc, epsomite...) and you'll receive a gift just for taking part.
