The tale of Golkonda starts in India, at the mines that have produced some of history's most famous gems since antiquity.
An ancient legend claims the God of Mines called his courtiers to bring together all the world’s known gems: Rubies, Sapphires, Emeralds, and others. He found them to be of all tints and colors and varying hardnesses. He took one of each and crushed them; he compounded them together, and declared, “Let this be something that will combine the beauty of all.” He spoke, and behold, the Diamond was born... pure as a dewdrop and invincible in hardness. Yet when its ray is resolved in the spectrum, it displays all the colors of the gems from which it was created.
Magnificent diamonds were taken from the mines in the regions surrounding Golkonda and dispersed all over the world. They continue to surface to this day carrying on their journey displaying permanence in a world of constant change. Famed diamonds from the mines of Golkonda, includE the Koh-i-Noor, the Hope Diamond, Nassak Diamond and the Noor-ul-Ain among others.
