The Gems and Minerals Hall at The Perot Museum of Nature and Science Is My Happy Place

One of my new year’s goals is increased self-awareness (whatever that actually means), so let’s start with the public admittance of a raging obsession, shall we? Here goes…

My name is Joslyn, and I am a gem/mineral/big craggy crystal thing addict.

My addiction started with the crystal encrusted goodness happening at Chanel’s Fall 2012 runway show (of which you can witness a whisper of in that image above.)


The Chanel loveliness went on to inspire a “Stone Age” product page (shown above) in our May/June issue of D Home. And, truth be told, after pulling that page together, I thought I’d had my fill of crystals. I was, dare I say, feeling gem-ed out (like when you try to kick cigs by smoking until you puke…or something like that).

But then I walked into the Gem and Minerals hall at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science and realized I’d made no progress whatsoever.

This is going to be harder to kick than I thought…
