The collections also contain the mineralogical collection of the Senckenberg Society. This collection is actually older as the foundation of the society ifself. Johann Christian Senckenberg (1707-1772) was extremly interested in minerals and rocks. His collection - together with the privat mineral collection of Eduard Rüppel (1794-1884) formed the basic of the Senckenberg Mineral Collection especially as cultural documentation of old and not anymore existing localities.
