Several people have written books about the mysterious history of the Hope Diamond, that the diamond originated from India, sold to King Louis-16 of France, then transfer hands to Mrs.McCleen of Washington Post, who finally donated to Smithsonian Museum after the death of her family. According to one Myanmar archealogist's writings, this great diamond was removed and stolen from the forehead of a Buddha image donated by King Kyansitthar of Bagan (AD 1064-1113).
