Learn about the mysterious Hope Diamond with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. The 45.52-carat Hope Diamond is the largest deep-blue diamond in the world. In its body of less than one cubic inch, it holds a history dripping with mystery, conspiracy, and celebrity. It is now housed behind three inches of bulletproof glass in the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and looks out at a world fixated with its beauty and history. Originally 115 carats, the Hope Diamond was discovered in India by the French merchant-traveler Jean Tavernier in the 1660s. Born in 1605, Tavernier was apprenticed to a jeweler at a young age. Later in life, between 1631 and 1638, he made six trips to India to obtain and trade diamonds. He was reputed to have discovered the Hope Diamond in the forehead of a statue of the Hindu goddess Sita in a temple. His alleged theft of the diamond spawned the famed story of the ´´curse´´.
