Glitz of Choice

On a recent visit to Washington, DC, my daughter and I visited the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. One of our favorite exhibits showcased minerals and gems.  While my daughter couldn’t wait to see the beautiful cut and set stones, I was drawn to the stones in their natural states. Below are two of our favorites.
