The humongous rock measures almost three inches long was found in Angola and it’s the 27th biggest ever discovered, to information published by the Australia-based Lucapa Diamond Company reported by CNBC. It’s almost double the size of the 217.4-carat “Angolan Star” discovered in 2007.
The largest diamond ever found was the 3,100-carat Cullinan Diamond found in South Africa in 1905.
This 404.2-carat diamond is categorized as a rare Type IIa, a ranking that makes up less than 1 percent of the world’s diamonds. That means it is almost entire flawless.
Unfortunately, we do not yet have a value for the stone, which is really what we all wanted to know.
