It was only a while ago that we were reporting the discovery of the Ganesha diamond at an Orra mine in Africa. Well, here is yet another rare diamond discovery by a company called Petra Diamond Ltd. Shaped like a chicken egg, this gorgeous rock too has been found in a South African mine which is located in Northeast Pretoria.
The huge discovery was made last Thursday. It has been revealed to the public that the diamond weighs approximately 100 grams with a value of 507.55 carats. It’s exceptional color and clarity are remarkable. In fact, experts are already counting this find among the top 20 high-quality gems.
The same mine gave us the Cullinan (3106 carats) some time back. That discovery too caught the attention of the world and it now sits as part of Britain’s Imperial Scepter amidst the Crown Jewels. So far no value has been attached to the newly discovered diamond. We think the owner will probably exhibit this beauty all over the world first and then maybe decide on a price. Though, this diamond might not necessarily be on sale.
