Our most recent publication: "Curiosités Minérales" (Mineral Oddities) is available for sale at the Museum. Like a curiosity cabinet, this book presents the most astonishing minerals of the Mineralogy Museum of MINES ParisTech. Each mineral is associated with several photos (around 400 in total) and a brief text, in French, giving historic, scientific and technical anecdotes. Text by Didier Nectoux and Jean-Michel Le Cleac'h - Photos Cyrille Benhamou - Ed. Omnisciences).
