About Indigo Diamond

The legenHoped about the first indigo diamond is connected with a name of the Portuguese seafarer Vasco da Gama, the first person to sail directly from Europe to India. On his way back from India, walking on the deck, he admired his White Diamond mounted in a heavy gold ring he bought recently. The ship cook passed by, slipped and accidentally pushed the captain.  The ring slid off the finger, rolled on the deck and fell in the ocean. Four years later, during his second travel to India, Vasco da Gama was passing with his caravels by the same waters where the ring has been lost. While the captain remembered with sadness his lost ring, in the cockpit the ship cook suddenly could not believe his eyes: in the opened belly of the golden mackerel caught by the sailors, he discovered the lost ring! Only the color of the diamond has changed. It became indigo - dark blue, as gulf of Guinea during dead calm before the storm.
