About 800 years ago a shining stone was found in India, which was named Kohinoor. The Kohinoor diamond is one of the largest diamonds in the world. It is said that it was found in the Golconda mine of India. When the British colony came to Punjab in 1849, it was presented to the Queen by the last Sikh ruler, Dalip Singh. Not only this, there is also a big stone in the crown of the Queen given to Queen Victoria in 1856 by the then Sultan of Turkey. He gave this to show his gratitude towards the support of the British army in the Crimean War.
