Brooke diamond. A red-tinged rough diamond crystal of unknown weight reported as one of the only two Diamonds to have been discovČered in the British Isles, presumably deposited by glaciers. The exact loČcation of the find in 1816 is not precisely known, but believed to be along the Colebrooke River on the Brookeborough estate. Lord Brookeborough had the diamond, which he had valued at $9,500, set in a gold ring which is stored in a bank vault.
