Founder

All of the exhibited precious stones were found by Bruno Dankl von Krasnik (* 1934 - † 2013) himself during his numerous mountain hikes. He was very often accompanied by his four sons Johannes Rupert, Andreas, Thomas and Sebastian.

He also polished the stones personally with a grinding machine and tools which he developed himself.

The Bergkristall Museum was founded by Bruno and his wife Anna Dankl von Krasnik in 1993.
