"Magnificent and Meticulous" brings together the most beautiful and remarkable cut stones from the collection of the Dutch National Museum of Antiquities.

You will see over a hundred examples of these colourful and often precious gems with engraved images. They come from the ancient Near East, Egypt and classical antiquity. Some are no larger than a fingertip. The stones display images of gods, animals, symbols, emperors and magic spells.

It is compulsory to book a time slot for your visit in advance. The exhibition is open until September 2022.
