Summary "Here are the true stories of the Smithsonian's most famous gems, including the Hope Diamond, Star of Asia Sapphire, Carmen LĂșcia Ruby, Hooker Emerald, and Blue Heart Diamond--along with details and fascinating facts surrounding rarely displayed gems from the Smithsonian vault and additions made to the collection since 1997. Not only a resource for learning about rare and beautiful gems, the book also presents tales of the larger-than-life people who once owned or were associated with these jewels--from celebrities and socialites to kings, emperors, maharajas, and captains of industry."--Cover flap.
