Big rock from Botswana

The diamond was unearthed in November in Botswana at a mine owned by Canada's Lucara Diamond Corporation. It measured 1,109 carats, the second-largest gem-quality rough diamond ever discovered. Its name means "our light" in the Tswana language of southern Africa.
In the language of the Anglo-Saxons, that's called a cool million.  I'll be interesting to see how it's cut.

  1. It would make an interesting ring as-is.
