The largest yellow pear-shaped diamond in the world is now on display at the London’s Natural History Museum. Cora International, the diamond company that crafted the gem lent it to the museum for about six months. It was unveiled there on February 28.
Because it is so rare, it’s almost impossible to determine the exact value of this Cora Sun-Drop diamond. The day this beauty was unveiled, Jerry Hall was there to model it and she described the gem as “Amazing, there’s so many colors in yellow! When the light hits it, all these different colors come out. It’s really wonderful.”
The 110-carat Cora Sun-Drop Yellow Pear-Shaped diamond got its color from a very small amount of nitrogen in the carbon structure. It is like a “nature freak” that dazzles with its beauty. Colored diamonds are very rare, and colored diamonds of this size are even more so.
