The Best Gems of All Time The Cullinan Diamond

The Cullinan Diamond

When it was discovered in South Africa, the Cullinan was the largest diamond ever found. It was cut into more than 100 smaller pieces, the nine largest of which belong to the British Royal Family. Pictured to the left is a brooch made out of Cullinan III and IV (obviously, they're numbered using roman numerals).
