Green Diamonds: Natural Radiance
December 9, 2017 – April 1, 2018

Some of the world's rarest colorful diamonds are stopping in Los Angeles for a limited time. 

The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County is hosting a special exhibition Green Diamonds: Natural Radiance, which will add eight cases of bright color and shine inside the Museum’s renowned Gem and Mineral Hall. The vibrant diamonds on display as loose gems and mounted jewelry are part of the Gamma Collection, which was amassed over the course of 20 years and is comprised of more than 60 of the rarest and most prestigious natural colored diamonds in the world. 

NHMLA’s Gem and Mineral Vault welcomes a wide variety of alluring diamonds showcasing natural green radiance. The science behind these diamonds is as mesmerizing as they are!

At the center of Natural Radiance at NHMLA will be “The Mantis”, the largest Vivid Yellowish Green diamond ever graded by the Gemological Institute of America, alongside “The Shangri-La”, the finest example of a large vivid green diamond, both of which are mounted in rings.

Green Diamonds: Natural Radiance will be complemented by seasonal offerings in the Museum’s Gem Store and an array of public programs, including “All that Glitters,” an all-day winter celebration of Green Diamonds that includes live cabbing demonstrations, tours of the NHMLA Gem Vault, and hands-on activities for all ages.
