Museum of Natural History Receives Diamond Donation

On Thursday, August 4th, the chief executive officer of Jewelers Mutual, a company that insures jewelry and the jewelry industry, donated a collection of 871 diamonds to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. The 500 carat collection was acquired by Jewelers Mutual about 10 years ago and is comprised of what is known as "rough diamonds," diamonds in their natural state before they are polished and made into jewelry. The museum plans to place some of the diamonds on display for the public and plans to use the rest for research. Scientists plan to study the diamonds to obtain a better understanding of how diamonds develop as well as their ability to be used in the production of electronics and medical devices. No word yet on when the diamonds will be making their public debut, but they are sure to attract the likes of jewelry lovers and gemology enthusiasts from around the world.
