Created by nature millions of years ago, minerals are works of art with breathtaking aesthetics, incredible geometric shapes and fabulous color palette.

MIMO

Mimodactylus libanensis “mimo” is the fossil of a pterodactyl. This one-of-a-kind complete specimen was found in Lebanon. It is a new species and a new genus of pterosaur, a being which lived around 95 million years ago.
It is promoted by means of state-of-the-art modern techniques: a hologram, an auto-stereoscopic movie, a full-scale reconstitution and a game “fly with mimo” – an entertainment that delights children and adults.
