- Gem Gallery - Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. 96-carat amethyst surrounded by diamonds. The mounting has a platinum top and yellow gold undercarriage. The amethyst is probably from Brazil and exhibits a deep rich purple color. Platinum and diamonds were often used, and amethyst, a favorite stone of King Edward VII’s wife, Alexandra, was often included in jewelry of the era. The brooch was donated to the Smithsonian by Mrs. George M. Morris in 1973.
