In a few words

A visit to the Minero Museum would not be complete without a visit to its boutique. You will find souvenirs from the region, such as magnificent postcards, sweaters, but also beautiful stones from here and elsewhere as well as collections of different formats. On the jewelry side, an astonishing variety of semi-precious stones is in the spotlight such as amethyst, abalone, agate, obsidian, hematite and rose quartz, to name a few. In utility or decorative stone objects, you will find bookends, clocks, sculptures, key rings, etc. You will also find a wide selection of abundantly illustrated books on minerals, geology and the history of the region. Finally, the amateur prospector can obtain tools for prospecting and identifying rocks and minerals, such as hammers, magnifying glasses, hardness points, etc.
