Washington's Museum of Natural History is the new home of the Dom Pedro - the world's largest aquamarine gem, cut from what was believed to have been the largest gem-quality crystal ever found. Discovered in Brazil, the crystal was then taken to Germany where it was transformed into its current shape by world-renowned gem artist Bernd Munsteiner.
