   For many years the Hope Diamond has been the star of the Smithsonian
National Museum of Natural History in Washington DC, but now it’s light is not shining as bright since it begun sharing the spot light with Dom Pedro Aquamarine, the largest single piece of cut-gem aquamarine in the world.  This magnificent gem was mined in Brazil in the late 1980s and named after its first two Brazilian emperors, Dom Pedro Primeiro and his son, Dom Pedro Segundo.
