Crysatlline Treasures - The Mineral Heritage of China - Launch Party
Every year a new temporary exhibition of minerals unveiled at the University of Arizona Flandrau Science Center and Planetarium (which also houses a superb mineral museum). This year, the theme is the mineral treasures of China. We were fortunate to be invited to the launch party of the exhibition.
The exhibition is open Monday through Friday 10am-3pm, and additionally 6pm-9pm Thursday and Friday. Saturday: 10am-9pm, Sunday: 1pm-4pm. More details from their website.
There were too many people to fit in the planetarium, so viewing screens and chairs were set up outside.
I do encourage you all to go visit the exhibition if you can!
