The Delong Star Ruby

The Delong Star Ruby resides in the Natural History Museum in New York City. It weighs 100.32 carats. In 1964 the Delong Star Ruby (along with the Star of India) was the object of an infamous burglary, carried out by Jack Murphy, known as Murph the Surf, and two other men. They were ransomed from $25,000 and both recovered. The Delong Star was found at a designated drop off site - a phone booth in Florida.
