Koh-i Nor, the 'jewel' of Val Thorens, is an impressive modern luxury ski residence built in winter 2013/14. Koh-i Nor, meaning 'Mountain of Light' in Persian, is in fact a 105,602 carat diamond (21.61g) currently mounted on the Queens crown of the British Royal Family and was once the largest diamond in the world. The Koh-i Nor diamond has passed through several hands over the centuries: the Mongol Khans, the imperial court of Afghanistan, the palace of the Rajas of India and finally to the British Crown.
