Seriously expensive sparkly rocks
The largest pink diamond to be discovered in 300 years has recently been unearthed in the diamond-rich Lulo mines of Angola. The astoundingly rare Lulo Rose gemstone (pictured) weighs a whopping 170 carats.
This magnificent stone’s true value will remain unknown until it’s been cut and polished, but the comparable Pink Star diamond – which was 132.5 carats in raw form before being refined to 59.6 carats – fetched an incredible $71.2 million when it went under the hammer in 2017. Could the newly discovered Lulo Rose topple the stunning Pink Star as the most valuable diamond ever sold at auction?
We'll have to wait and see, but in the meantime, read on to feast your eyes on the world’s most expensive diamonds. All dollar amounts in US dollars.
