A Study of Exquisite Gems & Minerals
Hosted by Stuart Wilensky & Naomi Sarna
Emeralds were the theme and stars of our trip to the Wilensky Gallery in the heart of Chelsea, NY. The Wilenskys have assembled the largest collection of emerald specimens, presented in a beautiful array of verdant gems. We were treated to a tour of the emerald exhibition with Troy Wilensky, followed by a talk with Naomi Sarna. Naomi shared her story of how she became one of the best gem carvers in the world, and then rolled up her sleeves to do a live carving demo. We even had time to try it for ourselves!
