 “Treasures of the Earth: Mineral Masterpieces from the Robert R. Wiener Collection,”  opens at the Bruce Museum on November 11 and continues through April 1, 2018.

 

Approximately 100 dazzling specimens will be on display, ranging from intricately connected cubes of pyrite, to dazzlingly clear crystals of selenite, to fiery red hexagons of vanadinite.

Robert R. Wiener, chairman of MAXX Properties, a fourth-generation, family-owned real estate company based in Harrison, N.Y., has built this comprehensive collection over the past four decades. His collection includes minerals from Madagascar, China, Peru, Australia, Morocco, the United States, and beyond. Many examples of unusual crystal forms, rare combinations of multiple minerals growing together, and eye-catchingly enormous specimens are all featured.
