The flawless yellow gem has more than 407 carats.

The necklace is studded with 90 white diamonds weighing nearly 230 carats

L’Incomparable was found in its rough state weighing 890 carats by a poverty-striken African girl as she played in a pile of rubble outside her uncle’s house in the town of Mbuji Mayi in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

 

When the girl’s uncle saw the lump, he was convinced it was of value and sold it to local African diamond dealers for an unknown sum.The dealers, in turn, sold it to a group of Lebanese buyers operating from Kinshasa, Kenya.
