Treasure from Dust: the geology of John Ruskin

Ruskin could not resist the wonder he felt at the ability of the earth to form itself into crystalline treasures and spectacular mountain ranges. He set himself to understand the processes of change that governed the earth and from this understanding he developed many of his principles for life.

A new permanent display about Ruskin’s geology is being created in the Linton Room and will feature over 2000 of the finest mineral specimens from Ruskin’s core geological collection as well as his manuscript catalogues.

From the 8th August a selection of geological specimens will be on display in the house. The Linton display will open later in the year once renovations are completed.
