Belarusian delegation visits geological museum at mining school

Belarusian Energy Minister Vladimir Patupchyk recently visited the geological museum of Ural Public Mining University.

The delegation went on a study tour with Dmitry Kleimenov, the director of the museum. Visitors were able to see "Baby," a smoke crystal that weighs 784 pounds and is the only one of its kind with such a size. The stone is also said to have magical properties, giving vitality and energy to those who touch it.

Guests were also able to see samples of meteorites and other gems in the museum, which included a visit to the "Golden Room," where one can see gold, silver and platinum in their original natural state.

Patupchyk signed the museum's guest book, saying the museum "is the best way to promote the greatness of Russia."
