Smithsonian National Museum Of Natural History Acknowledging and Recognizing Zeyan Hashim’s Benevolent Donations with an Aspiration of Educating the World About Natures Astounding Gifts

Though we do have several nice gemstones from Sri Lanka, the addition of your ten will be a great asset.  Many of these are larger than what we currently have in the collection.  Our collection would not be what it is today without the interest and generosity of people like yourself.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your generous gift of the suite of ten Sri Lankan gemstones.  They are exquisite in both quality and size.  I am very pleased to be able to add these specimens to the National Gem Collection.

The strength of our collection depends on generosity and cooperation such as you have shown, and we are most grateful to you.
