The Aurora Pyramid of Hope
There are so many interesting things to see inside the Natural History Museum in London but, I have to admit I went back twice to look at these beauties. Called The Aurora Pyramid of Hope, this is a collection of 296 natural diamonds in a wide variety of colors. It is said to be the most comprehensive natural color diamond collection in the world. After a little research, I learned that the collection is actually owned by Aurora Gems Inc. and has been on loan to various museums around the world. I'm glad I got to see them when I was there. The display was in a large case and every few minutes the light would dim and a UV light would come on and all gems would glow. Wikipedia has a picture of the gems glowing on their site here if you would like to see it.
