Gems at the Natural History Museum

We had an amazing trip to NYC and made it a priority to visit the gem and mineral floor at the Natural History Museum. It was a very different experience this time around now that I work with gems on a day to day basis. I really loved viewing the gem species in all their forms from rough to faceted and even wearable finished piece. The meteorites were also amazing, to touch an object that is older than earth is some what mind blowing.
