"World's largest diamond" found in NW

World's largest diamond
A "diamond" twice the size of the world's largest - the 3,106-carat Cullinan , has been found in the North West Province of South Africa. The light green gemstone, which weighs an astonishing 6,000 carats or 42oz, valued at approximately £15million. Its ultimate value will depend on how clear it is and how many flaws it contains, such as cracks, gas bubbles or carbon marks.

I rather doubt that is a natural diamond crystal. The crystal faces are too perfect and polished. As much as I hate "sight ID's", it really looks more like a fluorite crystal.
