The Hall is home to an exhibition of unique items donated to the Mining Museum by prominent domestic and foreign figures.

On display are items made of traditional Russian gems, a collection of miniatures made of precious stones and metals by the Carl Faberge company, and award weapons.

Historical safes contain unique nuggets of gold, silver and platinum, items from the collections of members of the imperial family, as well as a large transparent gem-quality beryl crystal, donated by Emperor Nicholas I, weighing more than two and a half kilograms.

Of particular note is the collection of agates and amethysts from the deposits of Brazil and Mexico, donated by the Italian collector Primo Rovis.
