The gemstone, which is now called the Hope Diamond, was formed deep within the Earth more than 1 billion years ago! It was originally used as one of the decorations of an Indian temple idol. But one day a Hindu priest decided it was far too beautiful and valuable to leave there and plucked it out. He was severely punished, of course, but the Hope Diamond was already out of the temple.
“The King’s jewel,” “The blue of France” “The Cursed Diamond” are some nicknames for the most mysterious and seemingly dangerous gem in history. The selected few who were “lucky” enough to possess the
famous Hope Diamond died horrific deaths. A 45.52 carat deep blue diamond with a steely deep blue color that emits a unique red luminescence, that is the magnificent truth of the Hope Diamond.
From a merchant to Louis XIV, to Marie Antoinette, to several socialites, great diamond Houses,
this mythical gem is estimated to be insured for $250 millions.
This gem is a symbol of human power, unimaginative beauty and proof that we never stop trying, fearlessly.
It’s final destination, the National Museum of Modern History in the United States.
Gems are a magnificent part of our planet. And diamonds are the purest stone
that can be found on Earth. We honor Earth Day with this video just to get
you in the mood on a mystery: Where do diamonds come from?
This is simply our kind of glam homy read ;) And a New York Times bestseller too!
As entertaining as it is incisive, Stoned is a raucous journey through the history of human desire for what is rare, and therefore precious. What makes a stone a jewel? What makes a jewel priceless? And why do we covet beautiful things? In this brilliant account of how eight jewels shaped the course of history, jeweler and scientist Aja Raden tells an original and often startling story about our unshakeable addiction to beauty and the darker side of human desire.
What moves the world is what moves each of us: desire. Jewelry—which has long served as a stand-in for wealth and power, glamor and success—has birthed cultural movements, launched political dynasties, and started wars. Masterfully weaving together pop science and history, Stoned breaks history into three categories—Want, Take, and Have—and explains what the diamond on your finger has to do with the GI Bill, why green-tinted jewelry has been exalted by so many cultures, why the glass beads that bought Manhattan for the Dutch were initially considered a fair trade, and how the French Revolution started over a coveted necklace.
Studded with lively personalities and fascinating details, Stoned tells the remarkable story of our abiding desire for the rare and extraordinary.
