  • India's diamonds have been prized for their size and beauty for hundreds of years, but did you know that diamond (vajra, Sanskrit for "adamantine") was first discovered in India in 4th century BC? India was one of the first countries to mine the stone. Some of the world famous Indian diamonds include the Hope Diamond, Koh-i-Noor Diamond, Darya-i-Nur (Sea of Light), Orlov Diamond, and Sanc Diamond.
