In the 3rd century of the current era the term "Frank" was used by Romans and others to describe a group of Germanic tribes living in the Rhine valley. In the 4th century Franks settled within territory ruled by the Romans and were a recognised kingdom. After the fall of the Western Roman Empire the Frankish kingdom under their Merovingian kings spread over all of France (which to this day is named after this confederation of Germans).

Gems, and most especially diamonds, appeal to virtually everyone. So when I was asked to select an object from the Mineralogy department for the ScopifyROM project, I chose a diamond brooch made by the renowned Italian jewellery house Bulgari. What more is there to love about diamonds other than their intense beauty, which is after all skin deep? Well, as ScopifyROM demonstrates, beneath the “wow” factor of this stunning piece lies a multitude of treasures to discover about diamonds.
