Geology Week in the capital

The Bucharest Geology Mu­seum will host, until October 17, the “Geology Week”, a manifestation organized by the Romanian Geology Institute, which will include a series of events dedicated to earth sciences, Agerpres reports.

The Geology Week has, as its main aim, promoting geological research, in general, and the research object, in particular.

The Geology Museum will host the itinerant exhibition, featuring minerals, which are usually found in the permanent collection of the Baia Mare Mineralogy Museum. The exhibition inclu­des over 80 mineral samples, singularly beautiful, unique pieces, collected in the mines in the Baia Mare area, an extremely important mining region in Romania.

Visitors may also keep track of the highlights of geological scientific research by means of an exhibition of posters. The Geology Week will also include the, by now, traditional sale exhibition of jewellery, crystals and semi-precious stones, organized in collaboration with the members of the Association of Amateur Mineralogists, Palaeon­to­­logists and Gemologists in Romania. Visitors may purchase minerals, druses, jewels out of semi-precious stones and other spectacular pieces, each one of its kind, at promotional prices.

October 14 was declared, this year, “Free Culture Day”, and, to mark that, all visitors may visit free of charge the halls of the Geology Museum. On the remaining days, the price of an entrance ticket is RON 8 for adults and RON 4 for children and the elderly.
