DiamondsSeptember 06, 2019 - December 1, 2019

Discover the most valued gem in the world at the new Diamonds exhibition at the History Museum of Mobile!

Formed billions of years ago, deep within the Earth, diamonds are the hardest natural substance known to man. Mine the mysteries of diamond formation, and explore the unique environments that create these precious stones. Using some of the same tools and equipment found in jewelry stores, you can test the size, color, and cut of your own diamonds!

This special exhibition is presented by Goldstein's Jewelers with special thanks to WKRG.

Diamonds is made possible by the Discovery Network, a statewide STEM partnership operated by the Museum of Discovery in Little Rock, Arkansas. 

 

Group tours for adults and children may be arranged by contacting Jennifer Theeck at (251) 301-0270  or theeckj@historymuseumofmobile.com.
