An unusual diamond box that had “poison Ivy” inside and was found inside a jewelry box in India has been sold by a museum for more than $1 million.
The diamond box was found at the Gurgaon mansion of one of India’s richest men, Gaurav Gaur.
It had been kept in the mansion since 1996, and the diamond box itself had never been seen.
But its contents have now been identified as jewels.
The box was discovered when the house’s security guard was cleaning out the garage and noticed a box with a silver chain inside the jewelry box.
The guard then took it to the Gaurv’s office to check the contents, which contained gold jewelry, diamond rings, and an emerald-encrusted necklace.
The jewel box had been used to store jewelry.
The jewelry box was part of a diamond box belonging to Gaur’s son, Vijay, who was born in the house in the mid-1970s.
The box was owned by Vijay’s younger brother, Arun, who had inherited the house from his father.
Arun was later arrested and charged with murder.
He was later acquitted.
A police team had previously found the box in a garage of the house, but they were unable to identify the diamond, which had been removed from its box and thrown into a pond.
“It was the only diamond box we found,” said Inspector S. Raghav, a local police officer.
A local jeweler said the box was one of the most valuable in the country.
“Its value is around five million rupees,” said Pankaj Pandey, adding that there was no evidence the jewelry was sold on the black market.
“This box will remain in my shop for many years.”
The diamond boxes of India have often been used for business purposes, said the jeweler.
“Sometimes the jewellers will give these boxes to businessmen and give them a chance to own them.
They get a good profit from them.”
