The Museum of Stone-cutting and Jewelry Art History is located in the estate of the former mining pharmacy. The ample wealth of the Ural mines gave rise to a stone-cutting and jewelry industry in Ekaterinburg. In 1751, the Ekaterinburg Imperial Lapidary Factory was set up. The earliest stone-cut pieces displayed in the museum date back to the 18th century, including a meter-and-a half vase made of Kalkan jasper. The pearl of the collection is the unique set of stone seals,.
