Celebrate the North Museum's "diamond" anniversary with this dazzling new exhibit opening June 1st. Take a journey from rocks to riches and discover how diamonds were formed deep within the earth billions of years ago, how they're mined and how they're used in some unusual ways.
From formation to the 4Cs, "Diamonds" highlights fascinating facts about the sparkling stone and its role in industrial, technological and scientific applications. Visitors explore these worlds and also have the chance to test diamond re-creations with professional jeweler’s tools. "Diamonds" is presented locally by Warren Jewellers and is a production of Science North, Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. The traveling exhibit will make its last stop at the North Museum before reaching its permanent home at the Yellowknife Diamonds Education Centre in the Northwest Territories of Canada.
