A GOLCONDA diamond

Type lla diamonds are the purest and most perfect gemstones, only two percent of all diamonds belong to this category and of those, the ones that come from the Indian region of Golconda are particularly more valuable for their beauty. This one is a great example, the light and the fire that this stone has is hard to beat, unfortunately it cannot be appreciated in the picture. Better to go and see it in person, I was lucky to see it at the London preview, but it will be displayed in NY for the Sotheby's auction on April 14th.
