Mim is a private museum which exhibits more than 1400 minerals representing around 300 different species from over 60 countries. Mr. Salim Edde has built up this collection since 1997.
It features pieces originating from a number of renowned collections –both old and more recent– as well as from the major mining discoveries of our era.This collection is now considered one of the world’s paramount private collections for the variety and quality of its minerals.
All these minerals are wonders of nature that have formed without human intervention but, rather, under the sole influence of temperature, pressure and the incredibly complex work of water and especially time.
