Put on your hard hats and step into a mine like no other! With gems and minerals from all over the world on display, the Coors Mineral Hall is filled with rare and beautiful specimens to discover.

The hall showcases silver from Mexico, topaz from Brazil, opals from Australia, and tourmalines from Afghanistan. But some of the most impressive specimens were found right here in Colorado. Admire the eight and a half pound nugget of crystallized gold called "Tom's Baby," bask in the red glow of the largest rhodochrosite crystal on Earth, and squint against the glitter of aquamarine. These spectacular gems and minerals will amaze and delight all ages!
