And it's "rough." But imagine the wedding ring!!!
From near Pretoria, South Africa:
A 507-carat diamond as big as a chicken's egg sold for $35.3 million, setting the record for the highest price ever paid for a rough diamond, the supplier said Friday. The stone weighs more than 3.5 ounces and is estimated to be among the world's top 20 high-quality rough diamonds. It was discovered in September at South Africa's Cullinan mine. The supplier, Petra Diamonds Ltd., said the gem was purchased by Hong Kong-based private jewelry retailer Chow Tai Fook Jewelry Co. Ltd. Petra said Chow Tai Fook hasn't disclosed its plans for the diamond.

I'd be embarrassed to give that small a rock to a gal as an engagement ring.
