Diamond is April's birthstone! The largest rough gem quality diamond ever found weighed in at 3106.75 carats! Named the Cullinan (after Sir Thomas Cullinan who owned the mine), it was found in South Africa in 1905. The diamond was cut into 9 major and ninety-six minor stones. The largest diamond (530.2 carats) is set in the Sovereigns Scepter with Cross and the second largest (317.4 carats) in the Imperial State Crown, both worn today by Queen Elizabeth II.
