” Paris is a Moevable Feast ” Ernest Hemingway

Museum of Mineralogy

Musée de Minéralogie, Paris, France

The tourists do not even doubt while passing in front of the Ecole des Mines, the eldest and the most respectable engineering schools in France, situated next to the Luxembourg Gardens, that in the heart of this School is hidden the rarest collection of minerals in the world!

This school was founded by Louis XVI and it houses a collection of 4000 pieces. The collection began as a simple cabinet of curiosities in the 18th century when collecting odd things was very fashionable!
