Gargoti Indian Minerals Ltd. under the visionary leadership of Connoisseur Mr.K.C.Pandey (KC) has been thriving consistently to conserve the neglected Natural Crystal Wealth & Creations (Zeolite Minerals) of Mother Earth in Deccan Plateau region of India.

It’s a matter of immense concern that not even 1% of these magnificent Natural Crystals which are known as Indian Zeolite Minerals are procured due to lack of knowledge about these crystals to the miners as well as to the common population of India.

Thus, initiating towards the cause of awareness KC in his private capacity has taken up the charge of setting up a chain of Minerals Museums & Natural History Museums to conserve & display Zeolites, Minerals, Crystals, Fossils & Gem stones from India & around the World with the prime motive of educating the population of India about these hidden & neglected magnificent creations of Mother Nature.

Ascending towards his vision KC gave India its 1st Mineral Museum named “Gargoti, The Mineral Museum” in Nasik. Considering the positive impact of this venture on the visitors, KC in association with Indian Ministry of Textile & Handicraft shaped a Gallery of these Natural Crystals & Handicrafts in the heart of India’s capital New Delhi.

KC is now all set to launch Asia’s biggest Natural History Museum in the Holy Town of Shirdi, which is most visited tourist town of Western India due to famous Shrine of Lord Sai Baba. The motive behind this venture remains the same i.e. to educate more & more people about these spell bounding natural creations of Nature.
