  • LARGEST FANCY NATURAL COLOUR BLACK DIAMOND IN THE WORLD

    The Enigma, a 555.55 Carat Fancy Black Diamond, comes up online at Sotheby’s next month as part of RE(LUX), a Luxury Sale Series. A treasure from interstellar space, The Enigma is extremely rare and the largest Fancy Black Natural Colour diamond in the world. It was listed as the largest cut diamond in the world in the 2006 Guinness Book of World Records. It is thought to have been created either from a meteoric impact or having emerged from a diamond-bearing asteroid that collided with Earth. 

    Cryptocurrency will be accepted as payment on the diamond, reflecting the fact that cryptocurrency has started to make its mark in the world of physical art and objects.

    The Enigma. UPDATE: THIS SOLD FOR £3,161,000
