Description

A very nice, sharp yellowish diamond crystal on kimberlite matrix.

It looks like the diamond really is naturally attached to it, but we cannot guarantee for it. There have been a lot of mounted diamonds on the market and this could be one. I cannot see any glue marks, but it might be constructed.

However the diamond crystal is very attractive and stands by itself.
