Darya-ye Noor

Jan 9th, 2013

Darya-ye Noor

The Darya-ye NoorThe Darya-ye Noor which means “Sea of Light”, or “Ocean of Light” in Persian; is one of the largest diamonds in the world, weighing an estimated 182 carat. Its color  pale pink, is one of the rarest to be found in diamonds.

This diamond, like the Koh-i-Noor, was mined at the Golconda mines, more specifically Paritala-Kollur Mine in Andhra Pradesh, India. It was owned by the Mughal emperors.

In 1965, a Canadian team conducting research on the Iranian Crown Jewels concluded that the Darya-e-Noor may well have been part of a large pink diamond that had been studded in the throne of the mughal emperor Shah Jahan, and had been described in the journal of the French jeweller Jean-Baptiste Tavernier in 1642, who called it the “Diamanta Grande Table”.

This diamond may have been cut into two pieces; the larger part is the Darya-e-noor (“Sea of Light”); the smaller part is believed to be the 60 carats Noor-ol-Ein diamond, presently studded in a tiara also in the Iranian Imperial collection.
