Australia’s biggest pink rough diamond has been unearthed in the East Kimberley.

The 12.76 carat sparkler which was discovered at the Rio Tinto Argyle mine is among the largest and most valuable pink diamonds in the world.

The rarest of diamonds, pink diamonds are known to fetch about $1 million per carat on the market..................................................
