Would you like to impress your friends by understanding such words like: ‘pneumatophores’, ‘samphire’, ‘foraminifera’ and to realise why the sand below the surface smells like rotten eggs?

The South Australian Museum was founded in June 1856 and mineral specimens were amongst the first material obtained. Since then the mineral collections have significantly grown to now totalling almost 40,000 registered specimens. Ben McHenry curated the fossil collections and ultimately the entire State geological collections housed at the Museum. He now specializes in curating the mineral collections.
