Sally Thompson had been tucking in to her breakfast of boiled eggs when she bit in to something hard.
The 39-year-old, who is from Cumbria in the UK, discovered that one of the eggs she had bought in a six-pack from supermarket chain Asda appeared to contain a small diamond.
"I took one, peeled it and bit into it when I feel something like gristle in my mouth," she said. "It fell on to the plate and I couldn't understand where it had come from - I thought it had come from me."
"The only place could have been from the egg."
Thompson took the gem to a local jeweler who revealed that it was actually cubic zirconia as oppose to a real diamond, however how it had ended up in her breakfast continued to remain a mystery.
According to former chicken farm worker Collette Francis, there's a chance that the jewel had been dropped by someone tending to the animals and was later swallowed up by one of them.
"Basically the shell coating goes on last and doesn't harden until it hits the air," she said.
"In this case it could be chicken swallows diamond, diamond gets stuck at intestine exit, egg picks up diamond on way out."
