Apothecary gold and precious stones

The History of Pharmacy Collection in Cluj-Napoca is preparing for the new temporary exhibition, to be opened on September 1st. It deals with precious metals and gems used in the past for their (presumable) healing properties, but other approached topics are Sennert's Philosophical Hen, Cordial Waters, Avicenna's Gilded Pills and the specific Materia Medica of Early Modern Transylvania. More news to follow soon!
