the mineral exhibition of the NHM Vienna / pt. 4
by Robert Kunze
My visit of the collection
I visited the mineral collection for about 3 hours. In this time I got a good overview, but I could not look at every piece more closely. You will know this, with time the eye gets tired and it is hard to concentrate.
I tried to find the pieces that were interesting for me and also to take pictures. This is not easy, because of the shape of the showcases many pieces are not well lit. Of course, this also shows in the pictures (I had to use a mobile phone). The quality of the photos is not comparable to pieces in new display cases or even studio photos.
I hope it is still interesting to look at pieces of such an old collection.
In this 4th part are the pictures of more than 50 specimens, more articles with pictures from the collection will follow.
I hope you’ll enjoy! Robert
