    A 'flawless' 100 carat diamond could be sold for up to $25million when it goes up for auction today.

    The emerald cut diamond is the largest cut of its clarity to ever be sold at auction and one of the biggest diamonds in the world.

    It took about a year to be cut into shape after it was mined by De Beers in South Africa and originally weighed more than 200 carats.

    It could be worse. It could be "Mined by Dell'Abate in Africa". That's with a capital "D" and a small - never mind.

    Just trying to keep this Howard related. I think.

    25 mill for a useless shiny rock that will probably spend the majority of its life locked in a safe.

    :nods: I was about to say; it doesn't even look good. I think it would have been better in a necklace or something, like this necklace Princess Diana wore:

    (CNN)A "perfect" diamond said to be so large that it draws awe-struck people across a room has sold for $22 million at a Sotheby's auction in New York.

    The 100-carat, emerald cut, D color, internally flawless diamond is the largest of its clarity and cut to ever be shown at auction.

    "People everywhere have been drawn to it from across the room and they are in awe of its size, particularly when they put it on their hand," said Gary Schuler, the head of Sotheby's jewelery department in New York, before the sale. "They can't believe there's a diamond this pure of such impressive scale."

    Only six flawless diamonds over 100 carats have ever been sold at auction, including the one sold on Tuesday, according to Sotheby's. The others include an 118.28 carat oval diamond that sold for $30.6 million at a Sotheby's Hong Kongauction in 2013, a record for a white diamond.
