9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Dec. 9-April 1 (closed Dec. 25, Jan. 1). The Natural History Museum’s elegant Gem and Mineral Hall will be shining more brightly this winter. This exhibit will fill up eight cases with some of the most exquisite diamonds – both loose gems and mounted jewelry – seen on earth. On display will be more than 60 of the most rare and prestigious natural-colored diamonds in the world. Among the most prized items are “The Mantis” (the largest Vivid Yellowish Green diamond ever graded by the Gemological Institute of America), “The Light of Erasmus” (an extremely rare 1.63 carat vivid greenish blue diamond), and “The Shangri-La” (a wonderful example of a large vivid green diamond). Visitors can discover the formation of diamonds and scientific origins of the green color, including the gamma radiation, which inspired the name of the collection. They can also view several examples of the mysterious, and rare, “Chameleon Diamonds,” which change color when exposed to light or heat.
