Just posted on, FLEISCHER MUSEUM PRESENTS: SMITHSONIAN STORIES – CLASSIC GEMS & MINERALS FROM THE NATIONAL COLLECTION. Installment No.3 – A Gem Collection Assembled / “The single most important event that established the world-wide reputation of the National Gem Collection was the gift on November 10, 1958, by Harry Winston of the renowned HOPE DIAMOND.” (Post) To this day, this endowment stands as the single most sought-out object in any American museum – and because of it came other major gifts such as the Napoleon Necklace, the Maximilian Emerald, the infamous Logan Sapphire, and a complete suite of yellow Diamonds by Janet Annenberg Hooker who would later become the namesake of the Janet Annenberg Hooker Hall of Geology, Gems and Minerals. The National Gem Collection consists of more than 10,000 important gem and jewelry pieces! The Hope Diamond courtesy of the Smithsonian Institution, photo by Chip Clark, 45.52 carats and measuring 25.6 by 21.9 by 12.05 mm, this gem is remarkable for its deep color, rare size, and flawless clarity…to be continued with many photos of the gems mentioned here.
