Watch TOP 7 Largest Diamonds Ever Discovered 7. Constellation – 813 carats Unearthed in 2015 in the Karowe Mine of Botswana, this 813-carat diamond was originally mined and owned by the Lucara Diamond Corp. After trading hands a few times, the diamond was purchased by De Beers, who sold it to the Zale Corporation. In a widely publicized sale in 2016, the diamond was purchased by Dubai firm Nemesis International DMCC for a record-setting $63.1 million, making the diamond worth $77,649 per carat. The company has future plans to reshape the diamond. 6. Incomparable – 890 carats One of the world’s largest diamonds was discovered in 1989 by a young girl who was playing in a pile of rubble in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It took four years for experts to analyze and finally cut the diamond, ultimately choosing to cut a smaller flawless diamond as opposed to retaining a larger size but with more inclusions. The resulting 407.78-carat, Fancy Deep Brownish Yellow, internally flawless diamond set a Guinness World Record when it was valued at $55 million. 5. Star of Sierra Leone – 969 Carats The fifth largest diamond in the world was found in 1972 in the Diminco mine in Sierra Leone. The diamond was initially purchased for approximately $2.5 million by jeweler Harry Winston, who cut the diamond in a 143.2 emerald-cut gem. When an internal flaw was noticed, the diamond was recut into 17 smaller pieces, the largest being a 53.96 pear-shaped diamond. 4. Excelsior Diamond – 995.2 carats The Excelsior diamond was the largest diamond in the world until the discovery of the Cullinan diamond. The stone was found by a working in 1893 in the Jagersontein mine in South Africa. Because the diamond was so large and flawless, it became difficult to find a buyer. Ultimately, in 1904, the diamond was sent to expert I. J. Asscher of Amsterdam, who cut it into ten smaller stones. The largest of these stones is a pear-shaped gem weighing 69.69 carats. 3. Lesedi La Rona – 1111 carats One of the most recently discovered large diamond, the Lesedi La Rona was unearthed in 2015 in the Karowe Mine in Botswana. In June of 2016, the rough diamond failed to find a buyer at a Sotheby’s auction, likely due to its large size. It is expected to be sold privately. 2. Cullinan Diamond – 3106.75 carats Found by Sir Thomas Cullinan at the Premier Mine in South Africa in 1905, the Cullinan Diamond was presented to King Edward VII shortly after its discovery. The diamond was cut into 96 small gems and 9 large gems, including the Cullinan I (also known as the Great Star of Africa), a 530.4-carat stone. The Cullinan I is set in the Sovereign’s Sceptre with Cross, an important part of the British Crown Jewels. 1. Sergio – 3167 carats This black carbonado diamond, the largest rough diamond in the world, was found in 1895 in Bahia, Brazil. Carbonados are very rare and are the most durable form of diamond. They often resemble carbon in their natural form. Some experts believe Sergio hails from space, a fragment of a supernova that occurred 3.8 billion years ago and landed on Earth 2.3 billion years ago. ======================== black diamond blue diamond diamond necklace biggest diamond in the world worlds biggest diamond biggest diamond found biggest diamond ever found worlds biggest diamond largest diamond in the world worlds largest diamond large diamond rings largest diamond ever found worlds largest diamond largest producer of diamond ======================== Facebook ► Twitter ► Google+ ► Tumblr ► Pinterest ► Reddit ► Linkedin ► LiveJournal ► Please Like and Subscribe Mega News
