The exhibition wishes to present the variable colours and forms of minerals, as well as quarries in Hungary in a building built specially for this purpose.

800 large of the several thousand piece collection is shown in showcases lit with halogen light. The collections from Erdőbénye and Rudabánya are prominent, as well as the Tatabánya-Csordakút mellite minerals and the twin crystal sphalerite from Gyöngyösoroszi.

The choral quartz from Historic Hungary Kapnik, the large crystal tetrahedron, the colourful fluorites, the green quartz from Felsőbánya are of special interest. Rare pieces eg tellurides, antique minerals that were collected over 100 years ago that were first discovered and described in Transylvania.
