Posted By Ben Goulding, 1 October, 2009 | permalink


One of the biggest diamonds ever found has been discovered at a mine in South Africa.

The rough 507-carat white stone was unearthed at the historic Cullinan mine – where the famous Cullinan diamond (3,106 carat), the largest in the world, was discovered in 1905.

A spokesman for mining firm Petra Diamond said the gemstone found last week was among the world’s 20 largest diamonds ever discovered.

Experts have put its value in excess of £200million.
