"Forever Brilliant, The Aurora Collection of Colored Diamonds" catalogues the world's most famous diamond collection consisting of 260 natural colored diamonds which have been on display at the American Museum of Natural History in New York since 1989.
"People are simply astonished at the wealth of different colors in a stone that, until viewing this collection, most of them had only known in the white variety. Their reactions brings to mind the dramatic success of the visual media switch from black-and-white to color: It was irresistible!"
