Diamant Museum Amsterdam

  Paulus Potterstraat 8 ,   Zuid          (+31) 203 05 53 00     more than a year ago
Start your tour of the museum with a film that illustrates how diamonds are formed and the science behind the process, how the first diamonds were discovered on the banks of Indian rivers thousands of years ago and how Europeans began to covet them and create some of the largest mining operations in the world. Move on to the exhibits that describe the polishing and cutting process, displays of replicas of famous jewels and explanations of the illegal trade in blood diamonds. You can also take a digital photo of yourself wearing a diamond encrusted crown which you can e-mail to friends and finish with the museum’s most prized possession – the Coster Skull, which is an odd and truly bizarre gorilla skull covered in 17,000 small diamonds. A museum shop and cafĂ© are also available.
