Romania's Mineral Heritage

The opening of the „Romania’s Mineral Heritage” exhibition will take place on Thursday, October 6, 2022, at 12 pm, at the section of the Oradea City Museum, located in Oradea Citadel, building B, floor 1, room 10.

The exhibition includes several minerals displayed for the first time in Romania, as well as some of the rarest and most spectacular mineral associations from Romania. The exhibition concept started from the idea that the Romanian mineralogical heritage is almost unknown to the public, for example few people know that in Romania 38 minerals were discovered, described, and documented for the first time in the world.

During the exhibition, 122 mineralogical samples chosen on scientific criteria, described for the first time in Romania and/or characteristic of the national space, but also from a museography point of view, as aesthetic samples will be exhibited which will delight the visitors.

We invite the public to visit the exhibition, enter the fascinating world of minerals, and promote Romania’s Mineral Endowment!

The exhibition can be visited until January 2023.
