Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from The Great Diamonds of the World: Their History and Romance; Collected From Official, Private and Other Sources, During Many Years of Correspondence and Inquiry

It is true that in the narratives of such stones as the koh-i-nur, the Great Mogul, the taj-e-mah, the Pitt, and other famous gems, fable has crept in, as if to try a bout, in romantic revelation, with fact. Oriental fancy has strewn the lurid history of the diamond with much traditionary gloom but human invention is outdone by the reality of human depravity and human woes.

A symbol of power, the diamond has been a talisman of not less in¿uence in the East than the very gods whose temples it has adorned. It has been a factor in tragedies innumerable, supplying the motives of war and rapine, setting father against son, blurring the fair image of virtue.
