The wondrous world of precious stones and minerals unfolds in the historic 'Huis der Waghevens', revealing nature's vast array of crystals. A good selection of stones, jewellery, sculptures and books are on sale, but a visit to De Alruin is also an informative experience for young and old.

You can learn all about where crystals are found, about the growth processes and crystal's possible applications.
