Natural History Museum of London

Back on the road and visiting museums.

The geology section of the Natural History Museum was fantastic. Great demonstrations, interpretation and specimens.

The Sunday stone shows white barium sulphate that settled in a water trough at a mine and during work shifts was blackened by coal dust. It’s a soft, recent stone that can be read as a calendar

    The Sunday stone is absolutely fascinating! Actually, the whole thing looks splendid and I am sublimely jealous of your adventures.
