The 507-carat ” Cullinan Heritage” diamond has been bought by (don’t laugh) Chow Tai Fook for $35.3 million or R270 million.
Fook me, that’s alot of SA ront.
“The sale of the Cullinan Heritage is significant in several ways, not least because it is an extremely rare stone that diamond experts have likened to the discovery of a Van Gogh masterpiece.
The size, colour and flawlessness of the stone has enabled Petra, which is listed in London, to secure a price per carat more than twice that which a smaller stone would fetch.” [TimesOnline]
We make them large here South Africa. True story.
Now you could easily have bought that stone if you had won the Mega Millions lotto last week, but you never bought a ticket did you.
You gotta be in it to win it pal. Its $112 million on Tuesday so get cracking.
Bring on the good times.
