Den största vita diamanten som någonsin auktioneras ut skall nu gå under klubban hos auktionshuset Sotheby’s. Auktionen ”Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite” hålls i Hongkong den 7 oktober.

Diamanten är beräknad att kosta runt 186 – 233 miljoner kronor vilket skulle leda till det högsta priset för en vit diamant någonsin.
