On February 22nd 2012 a rare pink 12.76ct diamond was found in Rio’s diamond operations in Kimberly, Australia. The rare pink stone has been named the Argyle Pink Jubilee. It’s been said to have taken 26 years to find such a rare stone, a stone so special that a similar one may never be found again. The Pink Jubilee is similar in colour to the 24ct diamond given to Queen Elizabeth II on her wedding anniversary.
A miner from Australia has said that the Pink Jubilee will take 10 days to cut and polish.
Who ever buys this rare pink diamond will be very lucky!
