Minerals of Canada

Write a Review
Piece Count:
192 (puzzle snack) & 504 (competition size!)

Cartographers in the 16th and 17th century had a fear of leaving unadorned spaces on their work.

This fear was called horror vacui.

Knowing the horror that a vacui can create, we set out to bedeck this antiquated map of Canada with some of the finest mineral and crystal specimens currently owned by institutions and private collectors.  Not to be outdone by the cartographers of yor, we also included our very own sea monster.

Each province has a provincial specimen or two in the house, with the exception of PEI.  Owing to the wondrous red soil that makes this island province famous, there is little in the way of mineralization, as a result, the good peeps of PEI must take solace knowing they have the highest number of world class golf courses per capita.  It's a tough job, but someone had take one for the team.

    Minerals of Canada puzzle

    Posted by Jennifer Burrows on 19th May 2020

    Stuck at home due to Covid 19, we were looking for something interesting to do. We found this awesome minerals of Canada puzzle online. It was easy to order and we were surprised at how fast it shipped! It is a beautiful piece of art, and we loved all the info on the minerals as well. But my favorite surprize was the packaging! Sturdy and resealable, no cutting the box open on this one! The week after we completed the puzzle, we found one of the crystals in a stream by our house and were able to identify it! Highly recommend this puzzle and company!
