Geology and paleontology museum located inside botanical gardens on Clemson University campus

Located inside the Clemson University's South Carolina Botanical Gardens, the Bob Campbell Geology Museum houses one of the most extensive faceted gem collections in the Southeast. Among the items on display is the largest topaz crystal ever found in this country, weighing in at nine pounds, as well as a 450-pound amethyst geode from Brazil, one of the larger specimens of its kind in a public museum. You can also examine a number of other plant and animal fossils, meteorites, minerals and stone carvings. Admission is free and hours of operation are every day from 10a.m. until 5p.m.
