This is the largest diamond found in the region in 13 years.

"The 'Lesotho Promise', was sold on Monday at auction for more than $12 million and is expected to fetch in excess of $20 million once it is cut up."

Good God, that looks like it's just the tip of the octahedron crystal too...I wonder if the bottom half is yet to be discovered.

I saw it on TV today - it was full of large (black) carbons. It'll be interesting to see how it's cut up. I guess they cut aroung the major inclusions...

It looks like it needs dropping in a crystal tumbler with some very old and expensive scotch poured over it! I keep expecting to see a droplet of water forming at the bottom of it! Please someone keep us posted on what comes of this.
