World's most valuable gemstone

Posted by Dan Hausel on August 23, 2017 at 3:55 PM

A beautiful, flawless pink diamond known as the "Pink Star" broke the record for a gemstone sold at auction when it fetched $71.2 million in Hong Kong. The 59.60-carat "Pink Star", the largest in its class ever graded by the Gemological Institute of America, was sold to Chow Tai Fook jewellery.

A 12.03-carat "Blue Moon of Josephine" was bought for the then-record price of $48.4 million in Geneva by Hong Kong property tycoon Joseph Lau in 2015, a day after he spent $28.5 million on a rare 16.08-carat pink diamond.


The previous record for a jewel successfully sold at auction was $57.54 million in May 2016 for the 14.62-carat "Oppenheimer Blue" sold by Christie´s in Geneva (modified from

The up to date info on the webpage is with out a doubt helpful and is going to help my family and friends while I am at work.

While the terms “tranny” and “shemale” may be commonly in use accustomed to on porn sites to identify a specific character of porn, many within the trans community reveal those terms offensive. They aren’t typically used in the well-organized brochures, either, so I'll wand to more commonly used lingo here, such as “trans” and “transgender.” That said, you are appropriate in noting that a weighty number of men appear to be interested in trans erotica and the first psychical research on this of inquiry dates go certain decades.
