The Golkonda Fort used to have a vault where once the famous Kohinoor and Hope diamonds were stored along with other diamonds.[5]

Golkonda is renowned for the diamonds found on the south-east at Kollur Mine near Kollur Guntur district), Paritala Krishna district) and cut in the city during the Kakatiya reign. At that timeIndia had the only known diamond mines in the world.

Golkonda's mines yielded many diamonds. Golkonda was the market city of the diamond trade, and gems sold there came from a number of mines. The fortress city within the walls was famous fordiamond trade. However, Europeans believed that diamonds were found only in the fabled Golkonda mines.

Magnificent diamonds were taken from the mines in the region surrounding Golkonda, includingDarya-e Nur, meaning sea of light, at 185 carats (37.0 g), the largest and finest diamond of the crown jewels of Iran.

Its name has taken a generic meaning and has come to be associated with great wealth. Gemologists use this classification to denote a diamond with a complete (or almost-complete) lack ofnitrogen; "Golkonda" material is also referred to as "2A".
