    • You can't tell whether a diamond is natural or artificial (lab grown). They're chemically the same thing. Also at that high of a price both natural and lab grown would show no flaws, perfect carat, perfect cut, and perfect clarity so there would be no physical difference either.

    • I worked at Goodwill for 4 years, and sometimes I would work utility, which had me taking out the trash every hour or so. I found a what I assumed was just a crystal ring that looked like a diamond, I took it to a jeweler and asked what it was, and found out I found an actual diamond in the garbage

    • This just seems like bullshit, mostly because there are diamonds that are considered national treasures that are smaller. It's probably a bad quality stone and someone removed "could potentially be worth up to" from the price.

    • Diamonds themselves are not rare. The bigger the diamond though, the more exponentially rare it gets. Red diamonds are the most rare, with there only being like 10 ever discovered. The reason "gem quality" diamonds are so expensive is because they don't scratch, unless by another diamond.
