    Lesotho, a South African country, has been digging up quite a few diamonds recently. This diamond in particular is
    478-carats

    Huge diamond hailed as record breaker - CNN.com

    it's the 20th largest diamond ever found and the same mine has found 2 diamonds larger than this one. One of them was 603 and the other 493.

    though there are diamonds larger than this one this one happens to be D colored, I don't know what that means exactly but it is the best color that you can get in a diamond which probably makes it very expensive.

    It could make a 150 carat round cut white diamond. :shocked:
    That'd be worth tens of millions of dollars

    3,106 carats? Wow, that's the biggest diamond ever.


    I know I'm not really into diamonds but one of my best friends dad does a lot of stuff with them so I know a lot about them, I find this article quite interesting.

    All we can do is hope that diamond doesn't erupt into another civil war.
