November 11, 2017 – April 1, 2018 at the Bruce Museum, 1 Museum Drive, Greenwich, CT New Exhibition. Treasures of the Earth: Mineral Masterpieces from the Robert Wiener Collection Treasures of the Earth will take visitors on a tour of the breathtaking splendor, wonder, and science of minerals. Approximately 100 dazzling specimens from the exceptional Robert R. Wiener Collection will be on display, ranging from enormous interconnected cubes of pyrite to dazzlingly clear crystals of selenite to fiery red hexagons of vanadinite. Robert Wiener, Chairman of Maxx Properties, has built this comprehensive collection over the past four decades. Truly global in span, it includes minerals from localities in Madagascar, China, Peru, Australia and beyond. Many examples of unusual crystal forms, rare combinations of multiple minerals growing together, and eye-catchingly enormous specimens are all featured. Visitors will learn how minerals gain their key properties such as color, crystal shape, luster, and size, and how they play a critical role in everything from nutrition to smart phone assembly.
