The Jewels Belonging To The Most Illustrious Order Of Saint Patrick, Commonly Called The Irish Crown Jewels Or State Jewels Of Ireland, Were The Heavily Jeweled Star And Badge Regalia Created In 1831 For The Sovereign And Grand Master Of The Order Of St. Patrick, An Order Of Knighthood Established In 1783 By George Iii As King Of Ireland To Be An Irish Equivalent Of The English Order Of The Garter And The Scottish Order Of The Thistle. The British Monarch Was The Sovereign Of The Order, As Monarch Of Ireland Until 1801 And Of The United Kingdom Of Great Britain And Ireland Thereafter. The Lord Lieutenant Of Ireland Was The Grand Master In The Absence Of The Sovereign. The Insignia Were Worn By The Sovereign At The Investiture Of New Knights As Members Of The Order, And By The Grand Master On Other Formal Ceremonial Occasions. They Were Stolen From Dublin Castle In 1907 Along With The Collars Of Five Knights Of The Order. The Theft Has Never Been Solved And The Jewels Have Never Been Recovered. 

The Crown Jewels Have An Estimated Value Of Between Three And Five Billion Pounds.

The Amber Room Was A Chamber Decorated In Amber Panels Backed With Gold Leaf And Mirrors, Located In The Catherine Palace Of Tsarskoye Selo “Czar’s Village.” Near Saint Petersburg. In 1716, Frederick William I Of Prussia Gave The Amber Room To Peter The Great Of Russia. A Gesture To Seal Prussia And Russia’s Alliance Against Sweden. In 1942, Nazi Germany Looted The Treasure From Leningrad During Operation Barbarossa. They Had It For A Few Years And Then It Disappeared. 

In 1979, The Soviet Government Ordered A Replica Of The Room. Twenty-four Years Later And At A Cost Of $11 Million (£8.4 Million), Partly Funded By The Germans, It Was Finally Completed And Installed In The Catherine Palace Once Again. The Original Has Been Replaced But Not Forgotten, Many Still Believe The Hunt For The World’s Greatest Lost Treasure Is Far From Over. 

Sometimes Considered The Eight Wonder Of The World, The Amber Room Is Valued At Over $500 Million Dollars As Of 2016. 

8. Lake Toplitz Nazi Treasure

Lake Toplitz Is A Lake Situated In A Dense Mountain Forest High Up In The Austrian Alps, 98 Km (61 Mi) From Salzburg In Western Austria. In 1943 And 1944, The Shore Of Lake Toplitz Served As A Nazi Naval Testing Station. 

The Locals Took Them To The Lake And Saw Them Dump Heavy Boxes Into The Water. The Nazis Presumably Filled The Boxes With More Than 100 Million Dollars Worth Of Counterfeit Pound Sterling Notes. It Would Seem That Someone Could Easily Find Boxes In A Lake. However, The Bottom Half Of The Lake Does Not Contain Oxygen. There Is A Layer Of Logs Floating Just Above That Level, Making It Very Difficult, And Dangerous, For Divers To Search For The Treasure. 

Legend Has It That The Nazis Dumped Billions Of Dollars Worth Of Stolen Gold—in The Area Of $5.6 Billion—into The Waters Of Lake Toplitz, An Isolated Lake Located In The Heart Of A Lush Forest In The Alps. 

7. Tomb Of Genghis Khan

The Location Of The Tomb Of Genghis Khan (Died August 18, 1227) Has Been The Object Of Much Speculation And Research. The Site Remains Undiscovered. Genghis Khan Asked To Be Buried Without Markings Or Any Sign. After He Died, His Body Was Returned To Mongolia And Presumably To His Birthplace In The Khentii Aimag, Where Many Assume He Is Buried Somewhere Close To The Onon River. So Its Location Would Remain Secret. Though It Is Uncertain, Researchers Believe That There Are Significant Riches In His Tomb. 

Many Believe Genghis Khan’s Tomb Will Be Filled With Similar Treasures Gathered From Across The Mongol Empire. It’s One Reason Foreign Interest Remains Strong. When The Emperor Was Finally Laid To Rest, His Soldiers Rode 1,000 Horses Over His Grave To Destroy Any Remaining Trace. In The 800 Years Since Genghis Khan’s Death, No-one Has Found His Tomb. Legend Has It That Genghis Khan Was Buried In The Khentii Mountains.  

6. Flor De La Mar

A Faberge Egg Is A Jewelled Egg Created By The House Of Faberge, In Saint Petersburg, Russian Empire. Possibly As Many As Sixty-nine Were Created, Of Which Fifty-seven Survive Today. Virtually All Were Manufactured Under The Supervision Of Peter Carl Faberge Between 1885 And 1917, The Most Famous Being The Fifty-two “Imperial” Eggs, Forty-six Of Which Survive, Made For The Russian Tsars Alexander Iii And Nicholas Ii As Easter Gifts For Their Wives And Mothers. 

Some Imperial Faberge Eggs Sell For Around 9 Million Dollars. A Lost Faberge Egg Would Likely Draw More. In 2014, The Egg Was Sold In A London Auction To British Antique Dealer Wartski On Behalf Of An Unidentified Collector. That Means Just One Of These Missing Eggs Could Make A Person Very Rich. 

The Dealer Didn’t Reveal The Amount It Paid, But Some Estimates Valued The Egg As High As $33 Million, Making It The Most Expensive Faberge Egg Ever Traded On The Private Market.
