About us

The “Geolitho Foun­da­tion non-prof­it GmbH” was found­ed in 2021 by Dr. Man­fred Seitz and Ste­fan Schorn.

We, the “Geolitho Foun­da­tion non-prof­it GmbH” pro­mote pub­lic edu­ca­tion in the field of min­er­al­o­gy, min­er­al­o­gy, geol­o­gy, palean­tol­ogy and min­ing by oper­at­ing, main­tain­ing and fur­ther expand­ing earth sci­ence projects.

The found­ing pur­pose is real­ized in par­tic­u­lar through the fol­low­ing measures:

  • Con­tin­u­ous improve­ment of the func­tion­al­i­ty of the “Min­er­alien­at­las-Fos­silien­at­las” as well as its ongo­ing adap­ta­tion to new devel­op­ments in terms of content.
  • Con­tin­u­ous expan­sion of the “Lithothek of the Munich Micro­mounter” with new col­lec­tion objects under care­ful con­sid­er­a­tion of the objec­tives defined for this col­lec­tion (espe­cial­ly qual­i­ty improve­ment, com­plete­ness, sci­en­tif­ic ver­i­fi­a­bil­i­ty, preser­va­tion of valu­able col­lec­tion objects from per­ish­ing, remem­brance of col­lec­tors who are no longer active and their col­lect­ing achievements).
  • Devel­op­ment and con­tin­u­ous improve­ment of the col­lec­tion-wide doc­u­men­ta­tion and pre­sen­ta­tion tool “Geolitho”.
  • Mak­ing avail­able all geo­sci­en­tif­ic projects and their results for pub­lic and sci­en­tif­ic purposes.

The “Geolitho Foun­da­tion non-prof­it GmbH” thus exclu­sive­ly and direct­ly pur­sues char­i­ta­ble pur­pos­es and oper­ates selflessly.
