The Rare Argyle Pink Jubilee Diamond Discovered this Week
Called the Argyle Pink Jubilee Diamond - a rare pink diamond in the rough has been discovered in Australia in the Tinto's Argyle mine in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia. This remarkable pink diamond weighs 12.76 carats and is said to be worth millions. The diamond is also the largest diamond ever found in the county, where over 90% of the worlds rare pink diamonds come from this mine. The pink diamond is similar to the Williamson Pink diamond the Queen received as a wedding gift, which was also set into the brooch she wore for her Coronation in 1953. With the queens Diamond Jubilee this year, we think this rare pink diamond should be given to her as a gift. The rough diamond is going to be polished and cut by expert diamond cutter Richard How Kim Kam - Mr Kam said "I'm going to take it very carefully. I know the world will be watching." The rare pink diamond has taken 26 years of Argyle production to unearth, which may prove to be a one off that will never be discovered again. Argyle Pink Diamonds manager Josephine Johnson said "This rare diamond is generating incredible excitement.
