The Stamatiadis Mineralogy and Paleontology Museum is the first of its kind, both in Rhodes and within the greater area of the Dodecanese. The absence of a museum such as this has in the past been repeatedly reproached to this part Greece, all the more since our country has made a reputation for the exceptional wealth of its soil. It is indeed to be wondered why up to the day of the launching of the Stamatiadis Museum initiative, the island of Rhodes – itself a place of renowned mineralogical and paleontological interest – had not had a museum of this nature. As is often the case, however eager, words rarely translated into practice.
