History of the Diamond
The Eye of Brahma Diamond also called the Black Orloff Diamond, was discovered in India in the early 1800s. The curse of the diamond is said to be responsible for three deaths. The jewel is haunted by a curse that reportedly began when the original 195-carat diamond was removed from the eye of the idol of Brahma at a shrine near Pondicherry, India.
The diamond is tied to the deaths of three former owners who apparently killed themselves. In an attempt to break the curse, the diamond was re-cut into three separate gems and since has been owned by a succession of private owners, all of whom seem to have escaped the curse.
At least three former owners have apparently killed themselves. In 1932, J W Paris, the diamond dealer who imported the stone to the United States, jumped to his death from one of New York’s tallest buildings shortly after concluding the sale of the jewel. And 15 years later, a pair of Russian princesses, Nadia Vyegin-Orlov and Leonila Galitsine-Bariatinsky, leapt to their deaths within a month of each other.
The diamond itself is set in a 108-diamond brooch suspended from a 124-diamond necklace. Black diamonds are very rare and get their colour from the presence of tiny mineral traces, mainly the iron-oxide minerals magnetite and haematite. Only one in 10,000 diamonds mined is coloured.
In 1969, the stone was sold for $300,000. It was resold in 1990 at Sothebys for $99,000. Also called the Eye of Brahma Diamond. The diamond is currently owned by Dennis Petimezas, a diamond dealer from Pennsylvania who bought the diamond for an unspecified sum in 2005.

It is best that Dennis return his portion of the stone to Government of Pondicherry as an act of good faith and interethnic friendship or that the government of the USA obtain that stone to do the same. The facts stand that the original intent of the fragments of the stone has to be respected, which is to be set in an eye of a Brahma idol.
Holding a portion of an ‘Indian’ eye, is not going to bode well for Christianity and Hinduism and likely could have sabotaged so many unresolved issues between ethnicities as well. Lets put it this way, pay a few hundred thousand at most and return the stone portions, or suffer slowly over the next few hundred years of 1/3 of the planets’ subtle quantum distress until ‘Brahma’ gets his idol’s eye back, with the fragments re-united with each other.
” . . . all of whom seem to have escaped the curse.” will not be the case as India’s fiscal, military and spiritual strength grow and Indians become increasingly aware of what is going on or has happened. Easily some equivalent of the ‘Order of Sion’ (nominally a ‘dark’ Brahmic branch of worshippers) could send assassins or at least thieves to bring back the 3 fragments to gain the favour of the World Creator whom the black 196 carat diamond was dedicated to.
Much like a case where someone supposed to travel to a certain country but didn’t or wasn’t at least helped to, a disaster struck that place instead. Perhaps that is how the wealth of the USA or whereever the other 2 fragments are is being sucked out of the country. Be honest and ‘Spiritually Correct’ (much like politically correct), and a good Christian would return the black diamond, or the darkness of Brahma will be upon so many lives for mere vanity and arrogance of 3 (or is it 1?) man/men. 195 indeed!
