Catálogo de la colección petrológica de Pere Antiga i Sunyer (1854-1904) del Museu de Ciències Naturals de Barcelona



Catalog of the petrological collection of Pere Antiga i Sunyer (1854-1904) of the Museu de Ciències Naturals de Barcelona
The didactic collections of natural sciences are an excellent resource for teaching at any educational level. In the 19th century, Pere Antiga i Sunyer treasured collections for the Antiga School, which he ran since it was inherited from his father. In 1888, when the school was closed, the collections were sold to the Martorell Museum, currently the Museu de Ciències Naturals de Barcelona. The collection catalogue consisted of 100 specimens with their corresponding lithological description and localities. The curator of Petrology at that time, Maximino San Miguel de la Cámara, reviewed and registered 97 of these 100 specimens. Nowadays, only 47 records are preserved from the Antiga collection that have been studied and documented again. In the present study we detail the complete catalogue of the Antiga collection that includes the lithological description, the locality and the most relevant features of each sample.
