Silva Vinh. Diamonds. November 14th , 2017.
The pure yellow stones are worth much more than yellow diamonds with secondary brown hues, however, if the diamond has secondary colors of green-yellow or orange yellow, this might raise the price of the stone quite considerably. This is because these diamonds harder to come by than yellow diamonds.
Some diamonds that made their way to the surface through volcanic outbursts, got distributed over ocean floors and riverbeds through soil erosion. Diamonds are also found in huge amounts, inside extinct volcanoes and there are chances of finding them in the live ones also but that obviously is a difficult task.
Mr. Frederick Wells received a prize money of 3500 pounds for the discovery of the world's largest diamond. It was named Cullinan after Mr. Thomas Cullinan, the mine owner. The Transvaal government bought the diamond for 1,50,000 pounds. The then Prime Minister of Transvaal government was Louis Botha. He came up with a suggestion of gifting the Cullinan diamond to King Edward VII, which was presented to the king on 9th November, 1907, on the eve of his 66th birthday.
Amongst all these diamonds it is the Kohinoor that is sought by the Governments of two countries and numerous other suitors. It is uncertain whether the Kohinoor and the Great Moghul were the same or are two separate stones. It is said that the Kohinoor was discovered in the mines of Golconda in Central India. The uncut Kohinoor weighed a massive 240 carats. The first owner of the Kohinoor was the Rajah of Malwa. Two hundred years later it was claimed by Sultan Babar, the first Mogul Emperor in India. He passed it on to successive generations of Mogul rulers, including Shah Jahan, the builder of one the Seven Wonders of the World , The Taj Mahal. When Nadir Shah of Persia annexed Delhi in the early 1700s, he seized the great gem.
