The Swiss Radiation Museum
The aim of the Swiss Blasting Museum is to make blasting, the search for minerals in the Swiss mountains, visible and to preserve this knowledge and skill in a museum.
- The passion of the spotlights: what is it that makes crystals so attractive, so beautiful?
- Their craft: How do they go about recovering the crystals from the rock as unharmed as possible?
- Your knowledge: This knowledge has been guarded for centuries by mountain farmers as a family secret and is in danger of being lost.
- The tools: The radiators have developed their own tools for their craft, some of them very individual. We show this one.
- How were the crystals formed?
- What does a cleft actually look like?
