"Kollur Mine (Persian: Gani Coulour) was a series of gravel-clay pits on the south bank of the River Krishna in the Golconda (present-day Andhra Pradesh), India. It is thought to have produced many large diamonds that are or have been a part of crown jewels. The mine was established in the 16th century and operated until the 19th century." [Wikipedia]
