A Christian pastor has discovered a giant 706-carat diamond in Sierra Leone which could be the 10th largest EVER found and worth more than $60 MILLION! The precious stone was found by Emmanuel Momoh, who was working in the Kono region, in the east of the country. The diamond was discovered in a smaller, or artisan, mine, which diamond expert Paul Zimnisky said rarely find gems of this size and quality. 'Artisanal mining tends to produce smaller, lower quality diamonds because the diamonds suffer breakage and erosion,' which is what makes the find so surprising and astounding! A single 25-carat portion is likely to sell for $2.2 million to $3.6 million. Zimnisky said that it is impossible to put a value on the diamond at this point, but the estimated value is at least $60 million.
