12. Sotheby’s Rare Green Diamond

001-12-sotheby-s-rare-green-diamond-2a17adcb93f13d945de1e4f70506e228

This fabulously beautiful diamond is rich with the color green and is the largest of its kind to have ever appeared at auction. It is a cushion modified brilliant cut and weighs in at an incredible 2.52 karats. The reason it is so precious is because green (along with red) is one of the rarest color variations a diamond can have. It is created by millions of years of exposure to irradiation deep inside the earth creating a certain absorption of light that other diamonds typically don’t receive. Generally, the green color some diamonds do have is removed during cutting, so this brilliant diamond is extremely rare. It is worth over $3 million.
