Hong Kong, Nov 21 : A 24-carat fancy yellow diamond that captivated Indian and Hollywood royalty, "Moon of Baroda" will go under the hammer at Christies auction in Hong Kong on November 27. Existence of the "Moon of Baroda" was first documented in the 15th Century among the vast collection of the Gaekwads of Baroda, princes of one of India's most ancient and powerful ruling families . The stone vanished for a few centuries and emerged in 1926 as it was brought to America by Prince Ramachandra and was later exhibited in Los Angeles during the Easter Fashion Festival in 1943.
