Tales from the Vault

Tour behind the scenes in the Mineral and Fossil Collections!

Tour behind the scenes in the ASDM Mineral Vault! Hear the stories behind some of our 16,000 specimens: some that first saw light of day over 100 years ago, some that traveled to World’s Fairs with famous collectors, and some that are best appreciated through a microscope due to their rarity or perfection of small crystals.
