A diamond weighing 404 carats was found by a mining company in Angola.

Tested by a New York diamond relator, the diamond was deemed “virtually flawless” and entirely colorless, which is the rarest form of the diamond.

Ranked the 27th largest diamond in the world, the jewel was cut and is now on display with the crown jewels in the Tower of London.
