For my endless fascination with crystals, I made up my mind to see the Museum of Crystals in Munich. After all, how often do you have a museum dedicated to these beauties?
Glad I did.
Here is a short account of the experience:
Walking down the wide pavements and gazing up at the clear blue sky and then looking back down and enjoying the happy contrast of the yellow shops and alleys of Munich – I am enjoying my solitary walk to the Museum of Crystals. I take my time, peep into a lot of antique shops selling ball gown costumes and records. Then giving in to temptation and treating myself to a coffee on the go (and feeling fancy because of it – it’s bloody expensive here), I find the building that houses the museum. I see a lot of handsome young faces, with bags and notes.
“Well, this is definitely more popular than I thought.”
I was wrong. You see, to my amazement, I find that the museum is a part of a university (that I immediately longed to be studying in). Feeling like the first day of college aka nervous, I find what looked like a reception. A woman smiled at me warmly and I take the cue and ask her the whereabouts of the museum – pay for the ticket and find my way in.
I am immediately greeted by this curtained off section and from my research, I know that this is where the glow in the dark crystals have to be. I walk straight in and see the most unbelievable crystals I have ever set my eyes on.
Weaning myself away with considerable difficulty, I then take the long and slow walk and gasp at every crystal on display. They have been mined in Munich, Austria, Brazil, India, Russia and all over the world. It’s a pity that the signs are all in German because at this point in my life I haven’t opened Soul Crystals and I can’t tell for sure which crystal is what.
I still go ahead and capture all that really caught my eye. And here they are, memories from the visit –
I hope you enjoyed these.
