Record colourless diamond to go to Auction....

Record colourless diamond to go under the hammer - Yahoo! News


Quote:
The 101.27-carat stone, which will be sold at the Hong Kong branch of Christie's auction house on May 28, is expected to fetch in excess of six million dollars (three million pounds, four million euros).
So who wants to bid on it.

Thanks for posting, kleenex. Our best friend is a premier jewelery and gemologist. I'll have to ask him if he's going to bid on it. I'll see him tomorrow and see what he says.

Wow! What a sparkler!!
