The Second Largest Diamond In The World
The Second Largest Diamond In The World0Diamonds are the most popular and precious stones in the world. They have been valued by people since ancient times. The ancient Greeks and Romans believed that they were the tears of the gods or splinters from falling stars. Moreover, it is the hardest natural substance in the world.

The second largest diamond in the world has been sold. It is a 1,109-carat diamond that was discovered in Botswana in 2016. It is called Lesedi La Rona, which means ‘our light’ in Botswana’s Tswana language.

The UK-based company, Graff Diamonds, purchased the diamond at $53 million at an auction. In a statement, Laurence Graff said, “We are thrilled and honored to become the new custodians of this incredible diamond.”

The largest diamond in the world was a 3,106-carat diamond, which was discovered in South Africa in 1905. It was cut into smaller pieces and some of them were used for the crowns of the British royal family.
