Georgi Gem and Mineral Collection

Bill Cotrofeld, member of the Capital District Mineral Club, is the curator of the Georgi Gems and Minerals on display.  Featured objects are mostly South American in origin include a Diamond embedded in Kimberlite, Cassiterite, and an Amethyst tunnel over 12” long!  Included are over 25 unique samples that Mr. Cotrofeld describes as “irreplaceable”, comparing the Georgi Collection to those at the Smithsonian or Museum of Natural History.

This is a Mr. Cotrofeld’s tour of the Gem and Mineral Collection at the Georgi:
