Museo di Mineralogia Luigi Bombicci

40,000 Rocks

Museo di Mineralogia

Not the least exciting of Bologna's University Museums is this collection, begun in 1860, and anyone at all interested in geology and mineralogy might consider a visit. On display are some remarkable crystals (including sulphur and other minerals from Emilia's mines), amber, meteorites, and a collection of prehistoric tools made from flint, obsidian and jade.
