Wertz Gallery: Gems & Jewelry
After observing the natural beauty of minerals and gems in Hillman Hall, venture into Wertz Gallery where the same natural specimens have been crafted into gemstones and jewelry. Approximately 500 gems, crystals, and pieces of jewelry are on display in the gallery’s permanent collection, which is supplemented by special exhibitions.
View beautifully crafted necklaces, extraordinary pieces of amber, large diamonds, and a full spectrum of artfully displayed birthstones. A rotating door of special exhibitions offer unusual and innovative designs including space age-inspired jewelry or garden-themed gem art.
