        The Stamatiadis Mineralogy and Paleontology Museum is housed on the ground-floor of PERLA MARINA, a brand-new Hotel Facility. The exhibits have been placed in showcases perimetrically arranged in a way such as to make the most of the 300 square meters over which the Museum's premises happen to extend. A series of wider showcases gave been placed in center of the perimeter. Such showcases feature minerals and fossils originating from various areas in Greece and the world over. Beautiful specimens of Azurite, Malachite, amazing Calcite and Galena along with several copper and lead-bearing minerals coming from such places in Greece, renowned for the mineralogical interest of their soil, as Lavrion, can bee seen on show at the Museum.
Also to be admired here are minerals from the island of Milo – such as Sulfur, Obsidian, Perlite and Bentonite – as well as specimens of mineralogical riches yielded by the soils of Naxos and Serifos. Prassin, the greenish Quartz appreciated for its quality all over the world, Barite, Hedenbergite and Garnet are some of Sifnos island's most known minerals. The soil of Naxos is represented by such well-known minerals as Emerald and Margarite whilst several more specimens, originating from practically every area in Greece, complete the picture.

       This collection is proud to host for the first time some of Rhodes most typical minerals, such as Artinite, Hydromagnesite, Serpentine, Quartz, Crocidolites ea. Several years of meticulous research by our team have resulted in the creation of a highly diversified collection of fossilized marine organisms originating from the Neogene Plyocenic era (anything between 1.8 and 5 million years ago) as well as parts of fossilized tree trunks and vegetation elements (as is the case of a fossilized pine-apple).

       A separate showcase has been reserved for the hosting of fossilized organisms of the most remote past – e.g. Radiolites, Hippurites from the area of Boetia (80 million years) and Annonites from Epidaure (site of Ladinion), dating from the Triadic era (230 million years). Also on show: fossilized fish from Brazil, from the Cretedic era (110 million years). A special mention is to be made of the Trilobites, from Marocco, dating from the Ordovician era (450 million years) as well as of the crocodile's scull, from the Miocenic era.
