About the exhibition
Through a contemporary scenography, the exhibition brings together more than 500 minerals, gems and art objects from the Museum's collections and more than 200 gems and jewelry creations from the House of Van Cleef & Arpels. This unprecedented dialogue between mineral, gem and jewel structures the tour and immerses the visitor in the history of the Earth, the processes of mineral formation and the latest scientific advances in geosciences.
