Asheville's new and unusual visitor attraction, the Colburn Mineral Museum, was started with the collection of the late Burnham S. Colburn totaling over 500 pieces. Now housing more than 2,000 minerals, the collection features many stones native to North Carolina, including Hiddenite, a rare mineral found only in Alexandria County. Among the oddities of stones is a piece of flexible sandstone able to bend at an angle.
