Diamonds are forever

If you live in Toronto or are visiting this winter, be sure to check out the Royal Ontario Museum’s The Nature of Diamonds (now through March 22, 2009). The exhibit explores the geologic origins of the stone, the history of mining and the modern diamond trade. Visitors will learn how raw diamonds are cut and graded, and find out the role the gem has played in art, literature, science and technology.

Jewellery worn by royalty and celebrities are on display, but the highlight is the Incomparable Diamond which, at 407.48 carats, is the third-largest cut diamond ever recorded. Entrance to the museum is free every Wednesday, from 4:30 to 5:30pm. On Fridays, between 4:30 and 9:30pm, admission is half price. (416) 586-8000; www.rom.on.ca.
