Picture of the Week #11

The Star of India, a star sapphire. American Museum of Natural History, New York. August 2006.

Another rock this week, but instead of a piece of Mars we have what is probably the largest star sapphire in the world. I loved the Gems and Minerals Hall at the AMNH and I never get tired of looking at similar exhibits in other museums. Lots of SHINY!
