Picture of the Day: 01.11.15 - Gems and Minerals

This weekend we took the kids to the Natural History Museum and Science Museum in central London, we had a great time (more of which in separate posts), but one of the things that certainly caught my eye was the gem collections in the Natural History Museum.  These were a collection of minerals, crystals, replica gems and semi-precious stones.

Anything green or sparkly tends to stop me in my tracks at the best of times, green and sparkly both?...
























This is the Aurora Collection, of 296 naturally coloured diamonds on display at the Museum's The Vault' room, I could stare at these for ages.  You can see more pictures here.
