Petra’s Mineral Collection

Petra’s Mineral Collection
Ljósbjörg Petra María Sveinsdóttir was fascinated by stones all her life and became a serious stone collector in 1946. Her stones and minerals are mainly from Stöðvarfjörður and Eastern Iceland as Petra did not spend much time looking for stones in other parts of Iceland. In 1974 Petra decided that her home would be open to everyone wishing to look at her stones. Since then hundreds of thousands of guests have visited her collection. While her house has taken on the appearance of a museum, it is first and foremost a home.
