A violin played to calm passengers aboard the Titanic is headed to a new home. 

The instrument sold at auction in the U.K. this weekend for 900-thousand pounds, or one-point-four-million dollars.  Auctioneer Alan Aldridge hailed the violin as the “rarest and most iconic” to survive the tragedy. 

Violinist Wallace Hartley went down in legend for reportedly playing the hymn “Nearer My God To Thee” before he and more than 15-hundred others died when the ship hit an iceberg and sank during its maiden voyage in 1912.  (Metro Networks Inc.)
