Sultan of Morocco

Sultan of Morocco

The Sultan of Morocco is claimed to be the fourth largest blue diamond. At 35.27 carat, this cushion shape grayish-blue diamond is believed to have been in possession of the Sultans in Morocco- however this fact had not been proved as it was impossible to discover the names of this legendary diamond’s owners. Moreover, most likely it comes from Southern India.

One fact that has been confirmed is that in 1840 the Sultan of Morocco belonged to the Yousupov family, a known noble Russian family. In 1922 the Sultan of Morocco was sold to Cartier in New York by Prince Felix Yousoupov II. In 1969, Cartier lent this diamond to the New York State Museum for their World of Gems Exposition.

In 1972 rare blue was purchased by a private American collector, the price was said to be $250,000.
