The BLUE HOPE 45.52 carats

The largest ever found Deep Blue diamond currently housed in the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in the U.S. capital, Washington, D.C.

The Hope diamond is truly unique and was officially recognized the ‘blue diamond of the crown.’ It was named after Henry Philip the Hope who purchased the diamond after it came to London in 1830.

The Hope Diamond appears to be a brilliant blue diamond to the naked eye because of trace amounts of boron within the diamond. The Hope Diamond exhibits red fluorescence under ultraviolet light and is classified as a Type IIb diamond.
