Synopsis

A European gem trader documented the world’s largest diamond about 300 years ago. The trader, Jean-Baptiste Tavernier, described this enormous stone in his writings after a visit to the court of Shah Jehan, the Great Moghul, in India. The diamond was lost not long afterwards.

Although there are a number of theories about who currently might have custody of the diamond and which of the world’s larger diamonds are actually cut from the original Great Moghul, the true fate of the Great Moghul diamond has never been confirmed.

The Great Moghul provides a notional account of how the diamond was originally found in the mines of Golconda and follows the diamond through its exciting and bloody history. Finally, four American workers stumble on a lost treasure, including the Great Moghul diamond, in the Saudi desert. The Americans prove to be tough and resourceful. They are determined to hold on to their windfall, but are faced with extraordinary difficulties and pursued by a cunning adversary who will stop at nothing to reclaim his family’s treasure.
