Iceland, Stöðvarfjörður, Petra´s mineral collection

Petra´s mineral collection / Steinasafn Petru Stöðvarfirði

When Petra started arranging stones in her garden, it was for the simple reason that she did not have room for them inside her house.  At first she arranged the stones south of her house but the continued up the west side and up into the back garden.  In the fifties, the stones had started attracting such attention that travelers asked if they might take a look at her collection.  As testified by Petra´s guestbook from the first years, the visitors were a few Icelanders that wanted to take a look at the stones, but bit by bit they grew in numbers and people from other countries started visiting.  It was not long before thousands of guests visited Petra´s home each year.
