A SPECIAL DIAMOND EXHIBIT AT NHM Los Angeles: The reunion of exceptional diamonds

by queenofcolordiamonds

If ever I wish I could hop on a plane and visit an incredible collection of natural fancy color diamonds, it would be at the Gem Vault of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. Although today is the last day of the exhibit it just sounds so incredible with the combination of The Blue Moon Diamond and the Butterfly of Peace diamond collection.

The Aurora collection is an equisite array of 240 fancy-colored diamond meticulasely arranged into the shape of a butterful that took owner Alan Bronstein ten years to collect and arrange.

The renown Aurora Butterfly of Peace: 240 natural fancy-colored diamonds. All known colors of diamonds are represented in this unique and exceptional collection totaling 167 carats of beauty. The collection is not only a delight for the public but also for the scientists to study. The variety of colors makes it the best tool to analyze the color in diamonds. On loan from Aurora Gems.
