Colored Diamond Exhibit

New York--New York's American Museum of Natural History is extending its exhibit of a set of five vivid natural color diamonds.  The collection had been scheduled to run from September 2009 to February 2010 it had been decided that the diamonds will remain on display until further notice. 

The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) has graded each diamond in the collection as "vivid," meaning they all have the highest levels of color saturation possible for colored diamonds.  The collection consists of: a 1.01-carat, vivid orange-yellow diamond; a 1.02-carat, vivid blue-green diamond; a 2.17-carat, vivid purplish-pink diamond; a 2.13-carat, vivid blue diamond; and a 2.34-carat, vivid orange diamond.

Graded by GIA as a fancy red, the 1.71-carat, heart-shaped stone is the largest natural red diamond in the world and has an estimated value of $10 million.
It's well worth the cost of admission to view these stones.New York--New York's American Museum of Natural History is extending its exhibit of a set of five vivid natural color diamonds.  The collection had been scheduled to run from September 2009 to February 2010 it had been decided that the diamonds will remain on display until further notice.
