A beautiful and useful collection The mineralogical collection of MINES ParisTech, preserved at the historic Vendôme Hotel for over two hundred years, is recognized as one of the most complete and spectacular mineralogical collections in the world. Today, it is comprised of around 100,000 samples, including 4,000 on exhibit, and over 2,900 species of minerals! Although the beauty and diversity of these mineral treasures is immediately striking, it has taken years of study to understand their true natures. Today, the museum is not only a repository of mineral species and a display of mineral diversit, it is also an active research center.
