The novel is set in the late nineteenth century and derived from a basic element of reality: the Cullinan, the most famous diamond in the world. It was discovered inside a rock but its missing large part was never found. The author, with a proficient descriptive ability, tries to reveal the true story of Cullinan's missing part and of its finder, James Rundell, a young Irish shepherd. The novel, in which the author uncovers a mystical reality upon the readers' eyes, takes its audience to distant lands, oceans, sailing ships and adventurous characters. Rocco De Virgilio works as a Gemologist, specifically as a diamond expert analyst. He is also a researcher of stories related to major diamond mines. Furthermore, he has sailed as captain and owner of many ships, like Oceanica. Silver T. James from Donegal is his first novel.
