Macro Minerals

Our forthcoming exhibition, ‘Riches of the Earth’, will feature macro photographs of amazing mineral specimens from the BRLSI Collection.

Sub-titled ‘The Beauty of Minerals’, this exhibition will explore the wonderful diversity of forms, colours, and lustres of these rare subterranean treasures. Currently our Collections Manager, Matt Williams, is often to be found in a darkened room taking close-up photographs of specimens that will adorn the walls of the Jenyns exhibition room, allowing visitors to get a very close view of these magnificent natural wonders.
Riches of the Earth will be open for six months from the 8th of April 29017.
