Hi Mickiana,
it didn't occur to me to break open the stone to get at the diamonds. This would probably make it even more likely Blumburrt would have kept the Sankara stone to win favour with the monarchy of the time. The diamonds could have been used for the embellishment of the Imperial state crown, which was reset with a load of diamonds in 1937 for the coronation of George VI. So its likely Blumburrt would have brought the Sankara stone back to Britain in triumph and won a new, more eminent commission, but at the expense of Indy's promise to the village from which it was taken.
