Visitors to the Harvard Museum of Natural History are dazzled by the Mineral Gallery’s beautiful specimens, yet the gallery displays only a fraction of the entire collection. While each of the collection’s 300,000+ specimens has great scientific value, a subset also has significant commercial value. Join Curator Raquel Alonso-Perez for a virtual behind-the-scenes visit to view specimens that, for security reasons, are not typically on display. You’ll see a rare opal in matrix from Mexico, tourmalines from the first pegmatitic discovery in the U.S. and crystalline gold, among other treasures. These objects have their own story and place in science. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see them up close.


Dr. Raquel Alonso-Perez

Curator, Mineralogical & Geological Museum, Harvard University


Presented by the Harvard Museum of Natural History and the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. 

Please note that registration closes one hour prior to the event start time.
