Storied Stone

This small exhibit was inspired by Nicholas Pearson’s The Seven Archetypal Stones, which explores some of the lessons—geological, historic, cultural, and spiritual—of the mineral world. Our small display and guided walk through the museum’s collections tell a few stories about these seven captivating stones.
