How Big Do Diamonds Get?

27 June 2016 / Blog

Diamonds, like most other types of precious stones, are found in a variety of shapes and sizes. Their size is generally measured in a unit of weight known as a “carat.” A carat is about one fifth of a gram, or a little less than 1/100th of an ounce. The majority of all diamonds found are extremely small, almost dust-like particles. However, from time to time, enormous diamonds are discovered. For example, the largest cut fine-quality diamond ever to be found on earth– a gem known as the Star of Africa I– weighs in at a whopping 530 carats!
