This is used mainly to check the surface cleanliness and order. 17

19 ICTP Mineralogical collections
With the inventory numbers belong the mineralogical collections to the largest and best organized university collections. They are internationally registered in a list of world-known collections in Europe. They were created by professor F. X. M. Zippe in the year 1835, enlarged by professor Jan Krejci, whose detailed catalogue of minerals issued in the year 1899 has been preserved till the present days. Professor Augustin Ondrej shaped the collections in such form which would well serve also to the next generation as a basis of science and pedagogic work.
