butterfly exhibit, my husband and I enjoyed the Gem and Mineral exhibits in the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. My favorite picture is above. It's a small section of a huge piece of what I suspect is amethyst quartz and people seemed to love touching it (and kids climbing upon it).
I thought this white stone rembled a dragon. I took it in honor of my Castle Age friends.
I hope all of you enjoyed my mini photo tour of the Smithsonian's Gem and Mineral exhibit. There's far much more to see if you go in person and I think it's well worth a tour if you're in the area.
May God bless you!
