What a museum. Couldn't believe this was here all the while and I didn't know about it. I think you should create more visibility for this place. I will certainly write a blog about my visit and put in on my website. For Gems and crystal lovers, its a veritable treat.

I had heard about this museum from one of my friend from Nashik. I got the opportunity to visit it few days back and I was really impressed with their wonderful collection. I bought few pieces of gemstone jewellery from their store. I think people who are interested in stones should come here. They have also kept in exhibition the Dynasore fossils found in Gujarat and other such fossils.
