Flawless BLUE Diamond, One of the World's Rarest Gems

This diamond is expected to sell for £6m! I beg your pardon? Is the price negotiable? LOL, I thought of buying this but I only have £6 but WITHOUT an M!!! hahahaha....By the way, this is a 7.03 carat fancy vivid blue, cushion shaped diamond from the Cullinan mine in South Africa.

David Bennett, chairman, Europe and the Middle East, Sotheby's international jewellery department, said: "Blue diamonds are among the rarest of all nature's treasures and it is very exciting to have such a fine example as the centrepiece of our forthcoming Geneva Magnificent Jewels sale.

"This stone certainly ranks among the most important blue diamonds that I have had the privilege of offering for sale in my career at Sotheby's. What makes it particularly special for us is that we've been able to follow its production from the initial rough state through the various stages of its cutting and polishing."

The cushion-shaped gem is internally flawless and owes its distinctive colour to the presence of the chemical element boron during its formation. The diamond, set in a ring, is expected to fetch between £4 million and £6 million at Sotheby's Magnificent Jewels sale in Geneva on May 12.

So this is now our chance to bid, happy bidding LOL....
