The Mineral Museum is a two-story gray building with a blue-famed entrance and windows.

The insides of the Mineral Museum is an open hall with stairs leading up to a second floor on the sides. The hall features many shelves with several types of valuable minerals (including gems) put on display for the public to see. According to Whisper, its exhibition is beautiful.[1]



The Mineral Museum was put together by Jewel the Beetle, with its exhibitions coming from the collection of minerals that she and Tangle had amassed over the years.[1]

Bonds of Friendship

While at work in the Mineral Museum, Jewel received a surprise visit from Tangle, who was showing her new friend Whisper the Wolf around. After introductions were made, Tangle and Jewel told Whisper about themselves and about how the Mineral Museum came to be. Soon after though, the Babylon Rogues broke into the museum and began stealing all its valuable minerals. Just before the rogues made their retreat however, Storm mistook a cowering Jewel for a large gemstone and took her with him, prompting Tangle and Whisper to pursue the rogues. After Tangle and Whisper got both Jewel and the minerals back, the group and their Wisp friends put the museum back in order.[1]

Tangle & Whisper

Jewel was later working in the Mineral Museum, when she found Tangle recklessly swinging around in the streets of Spiral Hill Village. After Tangle had crashed into Ron's stand, she returned to the Mineral Museum with Jewel where they talked about Tangle's recent restless behavior and how to remedy it over some chili dogs. Soon though, the duo heard a crash from outside. Jewel immediately took cover behind her desk, worrying that the Babylon Rogues had returned. Tangle, however, told Jewel to hide while she checked the situation out.[2]

Tangle soon came back to the museum with Whisper, who was after a mercenary shapeshifter named Mimic. As it were, Mimic was impersonating Sonic the Hedgehog and was potentially targeting Tangle among others. Hearing this, Jewel told Tangle that she should join Whisper in hunting down Mimic to fill help her in her search for adventure. Whisper initially refused Tangle's help but was soon convinced by her Wisps to allow her to join her. Meanwhile, Mimic came to the museum to stick a note on the front door with a dagger. Whisper discovered it, and saw that the note said that she should face him once and for all.[3]
