Want a real big diamond?

There's a new Lucy in the sky. This Lucy is a 5 million trillion trillion pound diamond. Take that Golden Jubilee.

Discovered in 2004 and named after The Beatles' song Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, Lucy is classified as a white dwarf the dead remains of a normal-sized star. In the process of its several billion-year-long lifespan, 90% of the star's mass crystalized, forming a giant diamond equal to 10 billion trillion trillion carats.

By the end of a fortnight he had estimated that the diamond in the mountain was approximately equal in quantity to all the rest of the diamonds known to exist in the world. There was no valuing it by any regular computation, however, for it was one solid diamond--and if it were offered for sale not only would the bottom fall out of the market, but also, if the value should vary with its size in the usual arithmetical progression, there would not be enough gold in the world to buy a tenth part of it. And what could any one do with a diamond that size?

Yeah but the clarity and cut is not exactly ring finger worthy
