The largest gem-quality diamond ever found.
The Cullinan Diamond was a large gem-quality diamond weighing 3,106.75 carats (621.35 g) discovered at the Premier No. 2 mine outside Pretoria, South Africa, on 26 January 1905. It was named after the chairman of the mine, Thomas Cullinan.
It was cut into several polished gems, the largest of which is named Cullinan I or the Great Star of Africa, and at 530.4 carats (106.08 g) it is the largest clear cut diamond in the world.
It was the largest polished diamond of any colour until the discovery in 1985 of the Golden Jubilee Diamond (545.67 carats (109.134 g)), also from the Premier Mine. Cullinan I is mounted in the head of the Sovereign's Sceptre with Cross. The second-largest is Cullinan II or the Second Star of Africa; at 317.4 carats (63.48 g) it is the fourth-largest cut diamond in the world, and is mounted in the Imperial State Crown. Both diamonds are in the Crown Jewels.
The Star of Africa, or the Cullinan 1, is a massive 530 carats and tops the scepter of the British Crown Jewels. It is about the size of a chicken egg.
World's most expensive opal literally glows in the dark.
Say hello to the 'Virgin Rainbow,' the finest opal ever unearthed
Meet the "Virgin Rainbow" – perhaps the finest and certainly the most expensive opal on record.
It literally glows in the dark. In fact, as it gets darker around the opal, the opal appears ever more vibrant.
The stone's vivid and sparkly nature is in stark contrast to Coober Pedy, Australia where it was discovered.
The area is a hot, more-or-less desolate and barren desert laid waste by millions of years of heat, heat and more heat. The mining community was built underground and looks more like Tatooine than Earth.
But, it used to be the aqueous home to untold numbers of marine dinosaurs, including the modern-day cuttlefish's ancestor—inside whose skeleton the virgin rainbow was formed and found.
Unearthed by a lone miner working an old mineshaft with an excavator in 2003, the virgin rainbow is comprised of water and silica gel which ran together millions of years ago before hardening into its present shape.
It's valued at over $1 million and was purchased by the South Australian Museum in Adelaide which will be presenting it as part of their "Opals" exhibit to celebrate 100 years of gemstone mining in the region.
