The creation of the national treasure of Iran dates back to the period of the Safavids, which constituted the Government Treasury which was distinct from the sovereign's personal property. Among the precious goldsmith works of this museum you can admire: the famous pink diamond "Darya-ye Nur" ('the sea of ​​light') weighing 182 carat; the famous Peacock Throne which was built at the time of Fath Ali Shah with twelve separate pieces and contains 26733 precious gems; the world map of Naseroddin Shah in which the part of south-eastern Asia formed of pearls, England with the diamond and India with the ruby ​​are clearly distinguishable; in the creation of this precious work the finely cut turquoise of Khorasan and the great pearls of the Persian Gulf were also used.
