25. Before  A.D 1725, The world in the history of mankind , the diamond mines were only in India.

The most important Valuable diamond mining were  in Guntur Krishna, Kadapa, Kurnool,  Anathapuram  these are the only areas. 

It's the real fact that The Diamond researchers themselves concluded this.
26. Now ... Let us know about
Vijayanagara  diamonds, 
Golconda diamonds   , 
Hyderabad  Nizam  diamonds. 
  AD 1450 to 1530
When the Rayalaseema regions of Andhra Pradesh are in the power of the Vijayanagaram kingdom, the Diamonds from the diamond mines of As The Andhra Rayalaseema region diamonds were being transferred and sold in Vijayanagar streets, So that they were called and named as the Vijayanagara Diamonds.

AD 1530 to 1686
Andhra and Rayalaseema regions were occupied by the Qutub Shahi, Andhra and Rayalaseema diamonds were tranfferred to the kingdom of Golconda diamonds, and when they were sold there in Golconda they were called and named as Golconda diamonds.

D 1724 to 1825
After that the Andhra and Rayalaseema regions occupied by the Nizam of Hyderabad, and when The Andhra, Rayalaseema diamonds had been taken away from Andhra Rayalaseema mines by the Nizams, they were called and named as The Nizam Diamonds.

27. During 16th, 17th centuries Andhra, Rayalaseema had labor need of Diamond mining after agriculture,

where there were records available that 60,000 laborer working each day in Kollur diamond mine ( to day Guntur district) .

In addition, there is a record that Ramallakota diamond mine in Kurnool region had about 30,000 laborers working each day.

Also, there were records that  Golconda kingdom  Commander Mir Jumla II  had instructed about 12,000 laborers to search for diamonds in Kadapa area.



During those days, many people were employed for transporting diamonds with high security to Golconda Qutb shah’s and exporting via shipyards, and for shining diamonds, and selling and securing to 38 diamond mines in Andhra, Rayalaseema.

28.

In those days, diamond mines adjacent to Krishna River in Bezawada were called as Eluru group of Diamond mines. (to day Krishna District)
 

29.

In those days, diamond mines adjacent to Krishna River in Guntur were called as Kollur group of Diamond mines.  (to day Guntur district)

         Why the diamonds were named as Golconda diamonds eventhough they     

                          WERE  mined from Andhra,  Rayalaseema?

Example : When we travel to abroad from Andhra Pradesh, we tell them we are Indian and foreign country considers us as Indians. In similar way most of the rich diamonds were sold to famous Empires in the world, they considered by this name. In addition, Golconda area was used for making diamonds to shine by diamonding smelter and foreigners traveled to Golconda to buy these diamonds, named as Golconda dimaonds. In fact, there were no diamond mines were available in and around Golconda area. However, it was clearly written in Golconda records that those diamonds were mined from Kollur in Krishna and Guntur.  (to day Krihna District)   (to day Guntur district)

                     Some of the famous travelers who visited India and documented their writings are
1. Marco Polo  (  September 15, 1254 – January 8–9, 1324) Italian merchant travelled to India and he wrote a book on Andhra diamond mines (this period was Rani Rudram  Prataprudrudu).

       (They were also wrote about Vijaya Nagara,  Sri krishna deva raya empire and about Andhra,                                              Rayalaseema diamond mines details.

In 17th century, Jean Baptiste Tavernier travelled India 5 times between 1636-1662 for buying Diamonds. He has an attitude that he wrote a book on everything he travelled and aware/saw. He wrote that there were 60,000 laborers worked in Kollur diamond mines. Also, he documented in his book on how they were mining diamonds, and what is the amount paid to Qutb Shah to mine such as ( 3,00 000 Lakh , gold  Pagods )  4,400kg to 5,500kg equivalent to gold and all diamonds those were more than 2gms. Jean Baptiste Tavernier wrote very clearly about his findings in his book named Tavernier’s Travels in India (1635 to 1677). Also, the next Nizam had similar method were adopted.

The above books are not written by Andhra, Rayalaseema people. What was written on above books were documented by foreigners who travelled to Andhra, Rayalaseema to buy those valuable diamonds from thousands of kilometers away. These records were written by the famous diamonds businessmen from around the World.

Why Andhra Rayalaseema people left behind in their huts eventhouh these people are laborious, intellectual, and had about 975km coastal with abundant fishing in addition to export and import duty from famous ports and 38 diamond mines. Where hard earned wealth went from Andhra Rayalaseema people.

5. How much it went to Hyderabad Empire, Nizams between 1724-1825?
6. How much it went to English rulers between 1825-1947? At the end attacking Delhi by Naadirsha in 1739 grabbed Diamonds mined from Andhra, Rayalaseema. At present those diamonds were part of Iran kingdom wealth. It was written these finding clearly that they were mined from Krishna  Guntur diamond mines.

Generations were born and died after human evaluation. Those generations fought for empires or religions fights, etc. and finally died in the wars or fought. They have used their energy and vast wealth for fighting leaving poor generations. If this energy and wealth would have been used for generations for human necessities like food, water, shelter, cloths and for development issues, there would not be any poverty in the World and would have lived in a beautiful and productive world not thought of fighting.
