The Perot Muesum of Nature and Science houses some of the most beautiful pieces of glitz and glam in North Texas.

Visitors can view those items in the Lyda Hill Gems and Minerals Hall. The permanent exhibit starts with a 5-foot rock that once a wheel is turned and the stone opened, you see the most amazing Amethyst. It is just one of dozens of gems and minerals that make up the exhibit.

Visitors will be amazed at the sizes, shapes and colors of the natural stones that sometimes make beautiful jewelry. There are stones from other country and a gold nugget that weighs just over 51 pounds.  

The exciting part of this exhibit is you get to see everything in its natural form.
