The Pink Star Diamond is FOR SALE...and for the bargain price of $60 million+ dollars, it can be all yours!
The Pink Star was discovered by De Beers in an African mine in 1999, and when it was found as a rough stone it weighed 132.5 carats. The company meticulously cut it to its current weight of 59.06 over the course of two years. After the stone was unveiled in 2003, it went on view at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. alongside the De Beers Millenium Star, which at 203.04-carat is one of the largest white diamonds in the world.
