All the recent media hype over the possible discovery of Columbus’ sunken Santa Maria has renewed worldwide interest in sunken treasure.

According to several archeologists, the remains found off the north coast of Haiti is “amazingly significant.” Watch a video of the find here >

Aside from the Santa Maria, among the most sought after wrecks is that of the San Jose. A Spanish Galleon, the The San Jose was reported to have been sunk off the coast of Cartagena, Colombia by a British warship in 1708. Aboard the San Jose was a fortune in precious metals and emeralds. Most impressive here at Gems At Large is the vast fortune in emeralds. Some estimate the total fortune of gems, silver and gold at over $10 billion USD.  Now that is a fortune!
