The Lyda Hill Gems and Minerals Hall in Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, Texas

Magnificent specimen of barite from Elk Creek, South Dakota. The barite is approximately 3 inches tall.

Giant serandite from Mont Saint-Hilaire, Quebec, Canada. This thing is huge, being somewhere around 30cm across.

This is a case full of beautiful mineral specimens. Kunzite, Vivianite, Scolecite, Brazilianite and Halite.

The Lyda Hill Gems and Minerals Hall was built from a $15 million dollar donation from Lyda Hill. Another 13 collectors donated beautiful specimens to fill the hall. Its has become one of the top mineral museums in America.
