Photographer's Note

The Finnish Stone Centre introduces you to the world of stone. You can also find here the Geo Knowledge Centre, which opens up the secrets of stone and the minerals within, giving you a wealth of information on the subject. There are spectacular mineral exhibits, including some amazingly coloured specimens from all over the world. You can also take a closer look at how our forefathers used stone thousands of years ago and find out about today’s quarrying and stone industries. The sparkling treasure chest of jewels is guaranteed to leave you breathless! At the Geo Knowledge Centre you can look at the geology of the Earth, and there are also some short films covering subjects from volcanoes to building with stone.
