Aurora Butterfly made of diamonds on display

Aurora Butterfly of Peace

Featuring 240 naturally colored diamonds arranged in the shape of a butterfly, this unique work of art not only reveals the rainbow of colors diamonds come in, but also demonstrates many of the stones’ fluorescence when it is brought to life under UV light. It took owner and curator Alan Bronstein, in partnership with Harry Rodman, 12 years to create this masterpiece.
