As the name says its a museum for flint stones and minerals. Wait… don’t think these are just road side stones. You won’t believe but some of them are more precious than DIAMONDS.
This is a private museum, located 32 kms from Nashik on Nashik-Shirdi highway and houses very precious stones and collections of earth minerals and its artistic (Naturally) pieces. These are collected by Mr. K.C.Pandey – a passionate mineral collector and enthusiast.
