The Black Prince's Ruby is a large, irregular cabochon red spinel weighing 170 carats (34 g) set in the cross pattée above the Cullinan II diamond at the front of the Imperial State Crown of the United Kingdom.

Spinels are found in various parts of the world, including the Transoxianaregion that was home to the Mughal ancestors. The Timur ruby is historically associated with Timur, who was believed to have taken the gem during the invasion of Delhi in 1398.In 1996, however, research indicated that it was never owned by Timur.
During the seventeenth century, the gem was in the ownership of Shah Abbas I, the Safavid Emperor of Persia. In 1612 he gave it to the Mughal Emperor Janangir. Jahangir had it engraved with his own name and that of his father (Akbar the Great). The stone passed to subsequent Mughal Emperors, including Shah Jahan (who had it set in the Peacock Thron...
In 1739 Persian ruler Nader Shah seized the gem during his occupation of Delhi. Nader took the Peacock Throne as part of his treasure, but removed the Timur ruby and the Koh-i-Noor diamond to wear on an armband.He called the Timur ruby the "Ayn al-Hur" ("Eye of the Houri), and added to its inscription. In 1747 Nader Shah was assassinated. The Timur...
In 1810 it returned to India when Ahmad Shah's grandson Shah Shujah was forced into exile in the Punjab. In 1813 Maharaja Ranjit Singh took possession of the gem. It subsequently passed into the ownership of Maharaja Sher Singh (1841) and Maharaja Duleep Singh.

In 1851 the Timur ruby was displayed at the Great Exhibition in London. That year, it was also reclassified as a spinel rather than a ruby. After the Great Exhibition closed the Court of Directors of the East Indi...
The gem was set in a necklace by Garrards in 1853.Shortly afterwards, it was modified so that it could hold the Koh-i-Noor as an occasional alternative. After the necklace was lengthened in 1911, it was rarely worn. The spinel is now part of the British crown jewels.
