The Hope Diamond is the largest diamond in the world, famous for its size and rare deep blue color. The diamond was originally part of the Tavernier Blue, a larger diamond discovered by Tomas agent Jean-Baptiste Tavernier that contained the symbol for a Tomas Clue, Zinc. The Tavernier Blue was in the possession of the French royal court until its theft by Ekaterina agents, who cut out the Zinc symbol. While the piece with the Clue was hidden by the Ekaterinas, the rest of the diamond was sold to an English banking family, the Hopes, after whom the diamond is named. The diamond was rumored to be cursed, and was donated to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. in 1958, where it has remained ever since.
The diamond is featured on Card 35: Hope Diamond.
