Cornell University

Cornell Center for Materials Research

Timothy N. Heasley Mineralogy Museum
Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences
Snee Hall, Cornell University

Cornell University JEOL 8900 Lab etc (they can measure anything?)

The Timothy N. Heasley Mineralogy Museum is nestled into the apex of the Snee Hall atrium. Despite its diminutive size, it hosts a surprisingly diverse collection of minerals, fossils, lapidary works and antique instrumentation. The displays within its glass walls feature specimens representative of the thousands of known minerals. Many of these are from type localities and are of historic interest, including specimens from the Benjamin Silliman, Jr. "Cabinet of Minerals" purchased by Ezra Cornell in 1868 as the foundation of the University's original Museum of Geology and Mineralogy then housed in McGraw Hall. Curating the museum's collections are Professor Emeritus of Geology Dr. William A. Bassett and gemologist Elise A. Skalwold
