这颗45.52克拉的灰蓝钻石传说是一位印第安人偶像的眼睛,它不断的为它的主人带来麻烦。尽管很多关于诅咒的传言是有珠宝商煽动的。但它也被和很多不幸的事件联系起来。受害者包括死于坏疽的Louis XIV,更恐怖的是他所有的合法继承人都在童年死去。放过财政大臣Nicolas Fouquet,据说活在了铁面具之下。Louis XVI和Marie Fouquet被斩首处死也被归咎于这颗宝石,这还包括朗巴尔亲王公主Marie Louis被锤子斩首,然后被剥去衣服,强奸,在她的头颅被戳穿之前被展示给监狱中的Marie Antoinette看。苏丹的Abdul Hamid将宝石送给了他的情妇,然后他又在一年之内将她赐死。一个购买了该宝石的珠宝商Wihelm Fals,被他意图偷宝石的儿子杀死,然后他儿子也自杀。俄国王子Kanitowski讲它借给他的法国情妇Lorens Ladue,之后王子在他被革命人士杀害之前,刺杀了他的情妇。Evalyn Mclean购买了这块钻石后遍开始对吗啡上瘾,之后她被她老公抛弃并最终死于精神病院中。这块钻石最终被放进一个棕色的纸袋中邮寄捐赠给史密森学会。邮递员James Todd在事故中市区了双腿,在之后的一次事故中又头部受伤,房子也被烧成灰烬。
Allegedly (but unlikely) plucked from the eye of an Indian idol, this 45.52 carat gray-blue diamond seriously seems to mess with its owners. Although a lot of the hype surrounding the “cursed” diamond was made up by jewelers who wanted to sell it, it has been (very loosely) connected to many unfortunate events. Victims include Louis XIV, who died of gangrene and had all his legitimate children die in childhood, and French finance minister Nicolas Fouquet, thought by some to be the real Man in the Iron Mask. The beheading of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette are often attributed to the diamond, as is the brutal murder of Marie Louis, Princess de Lamballe, who was hit with a hammer, decapitated, stripped, raped, and disemboweled before her head was carried on a pike to be displayed in front of Marie Antoinette’s prison cell. Sultan Abdul Hamid apparently gave the diamond to a mistress, whom he stabbed to death within a year. Wilhelm Fals, a jeweler who worked on the diamond, was killed by his son Hendrik, who stole the diamond and committed suicide. A Russian prince Kanitowski lent it to a French actress, Lorens Ladue, whom he later murdered before his own violent death by revolutionaries. Evalyn McLean bought the diamond, and consequently became addicted to morphine, mislaid her very considerable fortune, lost her son to a car crash and her daughter to a drug overdose, and was left by her husband who eventually died in an insane asylum. The diamond was finally donated, via US mail in a brown paper sack, to the Smithsonian. The mailman, James Todd, had his leg crushed in an accident, suffered head injuries in a later accident, and then had his house burned down.
