Does It Have Visible Inclusions?

Largest diamond in galaxy

Astronomers discovered the largest diamond of all times in space. The weight of the precious stone reportedly makes up ten billion trillion trillion carats or five million trillion trillion pounds.

The space diamond is virtually an enormous chunk of crystallized carbon, 4,000 kilometers in diameter. The stone is located at a distance of 50 light years from Earth, in the Constellation Centaurus.

They must recycle the news because this was reported back in 2004 and I mentioned it then. It's the same diamond.
