Kolyvan’

 

an urban-type settlement in Kur’ia Raion, Altai Krai, RSFSR, located on the slopes of the Kolyvan’ Range 80 km southeast of Pospelikha station on the Barnaul-Semipalatinsk railroad line. Kolyvan’ arose in the first half of the 18th century with the construction of the Kolyvan’-Voskresene’ Copper and Silver Smelting Works, which existed until 1799. In 1786, a grinding mill (after 1802 a grinding and polishing works) began to make ornamental items (vases, fireplaces, and columns) for palaces, often based on designs by G. Quarenghi, A. N. Voronikhin, and C. Rossi. (The best examples of this work are preserved in the Hermitage in Leningrad.) The present-day successor to the factory is the I. I. Polzunov Stone-cutting Plant, which processes jasper, porphyrites, quartzites, and marble for technical and artistic items; a museum is at the plant.
