Hidden in The Vault at The Natural History Museum was a real 'gem' - The Aurora Pyramid of Hope, a collection of 295 naturally coloured diamonds. On loan from New York this private collection took 25 years to curate as so few naturally coloured diamonds exist in the world.

More exciting than this was seeing the stones under UV light - making them give off a fluoro glow:
