Petra‘s Mineral Collection

View Photos

A love letter to the region

The most popular tourist attraction in the east of Iceland is in Stöðvarfjörður, where you will find a unique stone collection at Sunnuhlíð house and garden. The stones are owned by Petra Sveinsdóttir who began collecting rocks when she was a child and, once she and her husband bought their first home together, would retreat to the surrounding mountains searching for new pieces for her evergrowing collection.

Over 70 years, Petra’s mineral collection has grown to the extent that it is now one of the largest of its kind in the world. It includes mostly minerals, but also other natural phenomena and a great collection of plants. Though Petra has since passed away, her appreciation for the geology of the area in which she was born and raised lives on in the collection beautifully displayed throughout her personal home and garden.
