A testament to its owners wealth and power, the brilliant diamond survived exiles of kings and the fall of empires. After the assassination of its final owner in 1747, all records of the diamond virtually disappeared. The stone which rose from the dirt of a dried riverbed in India and became of the world’s most puzzling precious stones has been displaced ever since.
With Molly Brandenburg & Richard Rossner
Have you ever spent hours looking for something you simply lost? How about a hundred years? How about looking for a missing airplane? Or a vanished civilization? Every other Monday, Gone searches for everything lost. From D. B. Cooper to the Holy Grail, the Etruscan language to early Russian cosmonauts; if it disappeared, we’re looking. After all, just because something is gone, doesn’t mean it can’t be found. Gone is a production of Cutler Media and part of the Parcast Network. Ad-free archives of episodes six months or older are now available through Stitcher Premium.
