The Mignone Halls of Gems and Minerals @ THE AMERICAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY Are "Ready to Rock!"
New York's greatest treasures, the Mignone Halls of
Gems and Minerals are now open, and the response has
been overwhelming. Read on to discover what the press has been
saying, and see it for yourself this summer!
“Everywhere in this redesigned gallery are
reminders of the importance of both scale and time, and
reminders that the living and the nonliving—life and rocks…are
actually deeply and profoundly connected.” – The New York Times
“The Hall of Minerals is organized for wonder.
Wandering through it, you’re stopped by the almost kryptonite
glow of each of the specimens.” – Town and Country
“If you love things that sparkle with all the
colors of the rainbow, glow in the dark, and seem to defy any
definition of the term rock, you’ve got to visit the new Halls
of Gems and Minerals at the American Museum of Natural History
in New York City.” – Gizmodo
On view in the Melissa and Keith
Meister Gallery in the Mignone Halls of Gems and
Minerals, Beautiful Creatures showcases
exquisite historic and contemporary jewelry inspired by
the animal kingdom. See more than 100 animal-themed
precious jewels created by the world's great jewelry
houses and artisans, from Cartier’s iconic panthers to
Suzanne Belperron’s butterflies. This special
exhibition closes September 19.
