Mirny, Yakutia
Other
Russia
Size: 4.8x4.1x3.5
Largest crystal size: 3mm
This specimen is not available for sale.

This piece of kimbelite holds a sharp, undamaged diamond crystal, nicely exposed. The diamond is an octahedron with nice oscillating stria near the edges. I purchased this many years ago from Warren Boyd when he was importing diamonds from Russia. I could have chosen bigger diamonds in matrix but they were often damaged by whatever process they used to expose them. The kimbelite is textbook, showing small clasts of ilmenite, olivine, feldspar and, perhaps others. Very difficult to come by specimens like this and usually much more expensive! The proverbial "diamond in the rough".

All prices in Canadian dollars. For payment in US$, deduct 22% or multiply by 0.78.
