The gem was in the crown of Mughals emperors till shah alam II. Nadirsha the Persian Turk invaded India and took away the Kohinoor. After some time it is traced o the hands of King Ranjit singh of Punjab. The English took away the Gem to England after exchanging the same for some royalties to Ranjit singh. It was cut again and fitted into the crown of the English Monarch and now lies in the royal museum in London.
