Endless talk of all things sparkly.

Diamond found in Africa may be one of the World’s Largest!

Well I have two interesting stories today–one about a diamond that has recently been discovered in Africa and another about how you can possibly find a diamond hidden in your Secret deodorant!

So recently, September 8th actually, the mining company called Gem Diamonds based in London, made a discovery of a 478 carat rough diamond!  That may be one of the top 20 largest diamonds ever discovered.  Since the gem has not been cut and polished yet, they are still unsure of what they could potentially have.  A spokesman has said that it could possibly be at least 150 carats when all is said and done.  To compare that to other famous diamonds, I’ve added these pictures.  The diamond remains unnamed.  I’m excited to hear what happens with that.  You can read more about famous diamonds at this interesting website devoted to world-famous diamonds: http://famousdiamonds.tripod.com/famousdiamonds.html
