Value of Jewels A lot of
Jewelry , sold at auction :i few
years ago in- London, bought
$229 ODD. The crown of her
British Mag jesty cost 555 090.
The pearl which Cleopatra dis
solved and drank to the health
of Mark' An.honv, is estimated
by Pliny at about 375 000.
Feuchtvanjier records a small
box, containing a diamond, a
blue sapphine, a Bra'.illian berge
and a few peruvian emeralds,
s.dd for S30,000. Murrav
nentions a pair of bracelets set
with brilliants, valued at the
enormous sum of .$5,009,000.
But the most precious of all gems
is 'the diamond: it exje-Jtls in
value a hundred thousand times
its weight in gold. It is a port
able empire. The great Rus
sian diamond is estimated at $1
500,000; one belonging to the
Rajah of Mattan, in Bqrne, at
$1,419,000: the celebrated Re
gent diamond, now among the
crown jewels of France, at $ 2 -0j)9.01)0;
one in the Austrian
diadem, at $-150,000; and three
in the Persian, dignified with
die grand eloquent titles-' Moun
tain of splendor,' "Sea of Glo
ry,' and 'Crown of ihe Moon,'
aY 900,000. The largest di
amond known, that of the King
of Portugal, is counted worth
259, 099,000; and the famous
Koh-i-uo r." or "'Mountain of
Light,' belonging to Queen
Vicitoria, is said to he equal in
value to half the daily expenses
of the vvholii world. A string
of such pearls a nnle long would
purchase the fee simple of the
whole i!obe, and one that Would
belt the British Isle, might at
the same rate, buy up the solar

cast a thought tnvards the manner in
which this material is procured, the
quantities of it which are annually used,
ind the number of noble animals which
aTe annually slain for ihe purpose of sup
plying the constantly increased demand.
Mr. Dalton. a celebrated She&eld
manufacturer, estimates that the annual
consumption of ivory in the town of She
ffield alone is about 180 tons, equal in
value to .30,000, and requiring the
labors of 500 persons to work it up for
trade. The number of tusks to make
up this amount of ivory is 45,O0O,;and
According to th's the number of elephants
slaughtered eveiy year for the supply of
the Sheffield market is 22,500. But
Supposing some tusks to be cast, and
other animals to hnve died a natural
death, it may fairly be estimated that
iS,OJ0 are killed for the purpose.
