Now that's a rock

Okay ladies, try not to salivate too much, but Petra Diamonds Ltd. in Johannesburg, South Africa says a diamond the size of a chicken egg was found today.  I'm not much for diamonds or jewelry in general but even this gave me pause to look at in wonder.  The Associated Press is saying that the diamond may be among the world's top 20 high-quality gems.  Johan Dippenaar, the company's chief executive said in a statement Tuesday that the 507.55-carat gem was of "exceptional color and clarity."
