Gargoti - The Mineral Museum

Dear Friends,

We ( I & wife) had been to a business visit to Sinnar Industrial Estate (Near Nashik - on the Nashik - Shirdi Highway), where I found this wonderful museum Gargoti - The Mineral Museum.

It contains different types of minerals found in & outside India. Speciallity of this museum is that each mineral displayed is different from the other. Take a look at the photos (which we clicked in plenty) by clicking this link.

The Universe is an ellipsoid?... or a Spheroid?? If the sphere smiles... it becomes an ellipse. This IS Creation.

Thanks Avidtrekker.
Just take care of one thing. The guides over there will make you hurry up (to save power - they switch of the lights as soon as you move away from the area) but you should take your time to see the things. We finished viewing the museum in around 45 mins. to one hr. But we could have easily spent more than 2 hrs but for the guides.

Maybe a fifty note should do the trick.... (worse comes to worse)

Good tip... thanks
