A Diamond brooch made by the renowned Italian jewellery, house Bulgar, was selected by the Mineralogy department for the ScopifyROM project.
While to the casual observer, this is an example of fine made jewellery that sits in the Gem and Gold Gallery, Teck Suite of Galleries: Earth Treasures with other fine made jewellery pieces. As is reflected in the layered design of the brooch, this piece has layers of information and history as well.
Every day at the museum is a good day, but when a new object-specimen gets added to the collection, it is a great day. It was a particularly stellar day in Earth Sciences when we were able to acquire this lovely princess cut, 23.24 carat peridot from Myanmar (Burma).
