Description
 
Kevin Rushby. In the beginning diamonds came only from India. And the greatest of those ancient stones cut a deep & bloody path across the history & legends of the country. It was a path that took the Koh-I-Noor, the Mountain of Light, from the mines of Golconda in the South to the Mughal palaces of Agra & Delhi in the North. The Koh-I-Noor finally reached the Sikhs in the Punjab, only to be seized by British agents eager to please the young Queen Victoria. It now lies in the tower of London, its ownership still disputed. Rushby pursued the dramatic career of the Koh-I-Noor on a journey that uncovered the religious symbolism & mysticism behind the passion for diamonds.
