World's only diamond inside a diamond found

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Like a Russian nesting doll, one diamond is inside another.

The inner diamond moves freely within the transparent outer one. 

The larger gem is just 0.62 carats with dimensions of 4.8 x 4.9 x 2.8 mm.

Inside, the tiny nested diamond has an estimated weight of 0.02 carats and dimensions of 1.9×2.1×0.6 mm.

The extraordinary find announced by Alrosa can be seen on an X-ray image.

It came to light during sorting of gems in Russia’s diamond capital Yakutsk but the find is from Nyurba mine in the Sakha Republic, also known as Yakutia.
