The Mining Museum has informative and interesting exhibits about mining around the world. History, machinery, dioramas, and a walk through model mine. But my favorites are the exquisite mineral specimens.
Rhodochrosite (red) is Colorado's State mineral.
Selenite from Manitoba Cananda
Quartz from Ontario Canada
Scolocite (white) and Apophyllite (green) from India
Quartz on Specularite from China
A huge magnificent Quartzite specimen
And everyone loves gold
1852 $5 US gold coin
"Littlle Jonny" A 24 oz crystalline gold specimen was
recovered from a Little Jonny Mine muck car in 1892
Placer gold discovered in Fairplay, CO
Lunch was next. I had some really tasty pizza at High Mountain Pies.
It's called the Square Pizza, but comes round and very good
