When these Canadian miners went to work, they had a classic saying in mind: go big or go home. Measuring in at 33.74mm by 54.56mm, workers at Dominion Diamond Mines recently discovered what has been revealed to be the largest diamond ever found in North America. At 552 carats, it's a real whopper!


Dominion wrote in a statement:

"A diamond of this size is completely unexpected for this part of the world and marks a true milestone for diamond mining in North America."

On Twitter, users were amazed in their own, unique way.

Some were certain they'd seen the diamond somewhere before...

Dominion also wrote of how the "abrasion markings on the stone's surface attest to the difficult journey it underwent during recovery, and the fact that it remains intact is remarkable."

A diamond this size is going to bear some strange resemblances.



Users were also pretty nervous for whoever's job it is to cut the massive stone.


If anyone's looking for a last-minute Christmas gift, this may be just the ticket!
