Amsterdam Sauer Museum of Rare Minerals and Precious Stones
The Amsterdam Sauer Museum of Rare Minerals and Precious Stones, located Ipanema, in Rio de Janeiro,
is the most complete private gemstone museum in South America.
The collection is the result of almost seventy years of dedication of Jules Roger Sauer and
includes more than three thousand rough and cut gemstones, such as emeralds, rubellites, aquamarines,
tourmalines, and imperial topazes. Some of the stones are featured in the Guinness Book of Records.
The Museum, founded in 1989, is the only one to exhibit replicas of emerald,
aquamarine and tourmaline mines, the most representative Brazilian colored stones.
Internationally awarded prize winning jewelry is also in exhibition, as well as giant rough crystals.
Visit the Amsterdam Sauer Museum of Rare Minerals and Precious Stones is
