Langsdon Mineral Collection

The Mercer County District Library has a hidden gem in the Langsdon Minerals Collection - over 800 minerals showcased at the library. Our traveling educational program includes a presentation and hands on exploration of 20 minerals. Learn about mineral composition and uses while being entertained with memorabilia and stories about these minerals. Did you know that Cleopatra wore azurite and malachite as eye shadow? Or that jade is said to promote peace and tranquility? Minerals aren’t just fun to look at - they’re fun to learn about as well.
