Brunswick Blue II diamond. A pear-shaped blue diamond weighing 6 to 7 carats reported by Streeter (1877) to have been disposed of in the sale of the Duke of Brunswick's effects at Geneva in 1874. Formerly, it was believed by some experts to have come from the recutting of the French Blue Diamond. However, H. Tillander's recent study (1975) on "The Hope Diamond and Its Lineage" indicates that no other stones may possibly have resulted from the three recutting operations of The Tavernier Blue from which the French Blue was the first recutting. Consequently, the origin of the Brunswick Blue II is still unknown. It is possible that Streeter may have erred in his (1877) publication be¬cause in describing a similar dia¬mond in 1882, he lists the weight in two separate descriptions as 13.75 carats and 12 to 13 carats.
