I'd love to see a photo of the rough diamond.

Could not find any pics of the new Siberian find, but here is a 500 carat rough diamond found in Africa.

Holy smokes!

I don't like diamonds anyway but even cut many times, that would be way too much rock for me.

I'll bet it's very pretty. I'm impatient for the day the technology improves to the point that large artificial diamonds are more common. I'd love to have a few diamond bladed knives.

I don't know what people who "invest" in diamonds are thinking, and that includes some family members.
