Brunswick Blue diamond. A blue diamond reported by Streeter (1882) in two separate descriptions to weigh either 12 to 13 carats or 13.75 carats. It was named for the Duke of Brunswick, who owned it in the 19th century. Reportedly, it was disposed of in the sale of the Duke's effects at Geneva in 1874. It has now taken its place among the historically imporČtant Diamonds that, today, must be listed as missing. Until recently, the Brunswick Blue was believed by some investigators to have resulted from the recutting of the French Blue Diamond. However, H. Tillander's reČcent study (1975) of "The Hope Diamond and Its Lineage" indicates that it had another source. See BRUNSWICK BLUE II DIAMOND.
