Experiencing the world of minerals at first hand – at the mineral museum in Teis in the Dolomites visitors discover the wonderful world of rock crystal, quartzite & Co. and learn more about the “Teiser spheres”.

The small village of Teis is located at the entrance of Villnöss valley in the Dolomites. The mineral museum at the village centre offers a mineral museum with wonderful findings from the immediate surrounding area as well as from the European area.

In addition to the typical geodes from Teis from the mineral collection by Paul Fischnaller, visitors admire unique special exhibitions with exhibits from the entire world. Spectacular shapes as well as extraordinary crystalline forms do not only enchant passionate collectors but the occasional visitor as well.

Without any doubt, the Teiser spheres are the main characters at the museum. An introductory video shows the evolution of this special geodes. As well, the video displays the collector’s passion of mineral expert Paul Fischnaller from Teis.
