The Story of the Timur Ruby

  1. 1. The Story of the Timur Ruby Nabila Khashoggi
  2. 2. Introduction  Nabila Khashoggi is known as the author of the comic books series “Spartan and the Green Egg.” During her free time, Nabila Khashoggi loves to travel and visit museums. Recently visiting the Crown Jewels display at the Tower of London. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's collection is often mentioned in recent history. Her collection is believed to be so extensive that it is kept in a special room underneath Buckingham Palace. The room is said to cover an area the size of a skating rink. The Queen's collection contains many significant rare jewels of note, one of which is the Timur Ruby. Despite its name, the Timur Ruby is not a Ruby, but actually, a spinel which weighs more than 352 karats.
  3. 3. Timur Ruby  The Timur Ruby has a long history which is traced back to 1398 when a Turko-Mongol ruler named Timur acquired the jewel when he sacked Delhi, India. The ruby-like stone then passed through several owners including Shah Jehan and Farukhsiyar. It was not until 1851 when it was presented to Queen Victoria by the East India Company that the Timur Ruby became a part of the Royal Family's collection.
