Duration 220 days and 1 hour

A small display of minerals at the Diss Museum (Norfolk, England), specially chosen to link with the International Year of Crystallography.

DissMuseumMinerals have been selected that exhibit their crystalline form to illustrate some basic laws: the work of Nicolas Steno and the law of the constancy of facial angles (using quartz) and Réne Haüy's geometrical law of crystallization (using calcite and galena).

In addition there are minerals exhibiting special features including pyrite, sphalerite, magnetite, fluorspar, gypsum and rhodochrosite, some of which come from the famous 'Trepča' lead/zinc mine near Kosovo Mitrovica in Kosovo.

Opening times (19th March to 25th October):
Wednesday and Thursday: 2.00pm to 4.00pm
Friday and Saturday: 10.30am to 4.00pm
