The Hope Diamond
By: Patrick Lennon
What is the Mystery?
Owners of the diamond committed suicide, were murdered, and left penniless. Those who came in contact suffered failed marriages, dead children, drug addiction, insanity, etc. Is this diamond cursed?
Background Information
It is a beautiful blue diamond weighing over 45 carats. It is estimated to be worth a 1/4 of a billion dollars. It is the size of a walnut.
Different Viewpoints
"more or less a sensational story added by journalists in the late 1800's to sell newspapers."
some owners did suffer from bloody deaths, so it's cursed ( Marie Antoinette)
it is fake and they are coincidences
Where/ When Does It Take Place
It was created 100 miles deep in Earth, it was discovered in 1642 in the Golconda Mines. These deaths happen all around the World and at different times in the 1800s
I believe that it is cursed because there is no way to prove that it's not. People say that they are coincidences, but it seems highly unlikely to have this many coincidences of this significance.
I found all of my information on livescience.com.
