  3. Bohemian Garnets from the National Museum, Prague

June 17, 2023 - January 14, 2024

Petrik Gallery

A one-of-a-kind exhibition of priceless antique and modern garnets from the National Museum in Prague, Czech Republic is only making one stop in America — and that’s in Iowa. Over 300 objects that feature the fiery red gemstones will be on display. Many pieces are garnet-decorated jewelry, but others are household items like eyeglasses, mirrors, or picture frames. Mining and cutting equipment will also be featured.

Bohemian garnets are an important and beloved part of the cultural heritage for people of Czech and Slovak descent. After this special showing at NCSML, the garnets will be put on permanent display at a special new gallery at the Czech National Museum, never to leave the Czech Republic again.
