This room displays many samples from the local area: e.g. faceted gems of red quartz from Campogrosso (Recoaro); zircons from Fosse di Novale (Valdagno) and the rare xonotlite from Laghi.

Among the gemstones with cabochon cut there are colorful samples of johannsenite, the curious “waterdrop” from Vicenza – a hollow chalcedony which holds water in its interior – and the celestine from Val di Lonte (Castelgomberto).

The various stages of the process leading from raw to cut and polished gemstone are also showed (cabochon and faceted cuts).
