Never before seen together, nearly 30 magnificent, Texas-sized gems from the Smithsonian’s world-renowned National Gem Collection are on display in the Perot Museum’s Lyda Hill Gems and Minerals Hall through January 17, 2017. The mineral masterpieces, many weighing over 1,000-plus carats, include an “American Golden” topaz that tips the scales at almost 23,000 carats (more than 10 pounds), a blue topaz “football” of nearly 7,000 carats, kunzite Tiffany necklace, a Mogul emerald diamond necklace and more. This temporary installation marks the first time such a large collection of Smithsonian gems, some of which have never been displayed in any museum, have been on exhibit outside the famed Washington museum complex.
