is that called the "Star of the
Brazil South," which was found by a negro
woman in 1853. It was appropriated
by the mine owner who gave her in
return a pension for life. The stone
was sold for $15,000, the new owner
depositing it in the Bank of Bio Ja
neiro and receiving on this security a
loan many times greater than the
value paid for the gem. The diamond
was at length sold for ten times the
amount paid. It was finally acquired

than $500,000 for it, but was refused.
A little later it was bought for the
