Esperanza Diamond- worth $1Million

The spectacular 4.6 carat Esperanza Diamond - the most valuable diamond ever discovered in the U.S.  is now touring the United States and will be on display at Black, Starr & Frost salon in Phoenix, January 20-23.

As part of the three-month tour, the glistening colorless diamond will be on display at the Black, Starr & Frost recently opened Phoenix salon from January 20 to 23. The rare jewel is traveling to a limited number of America's finest jewelry stores  all of them affiliated with the American Gem Society

Plowed from deep in the ground at the Arkansas Crater of Diamonds State Park, the rare icicle-shaped gem is the fifth largest diamond ever found at the park. When uncovered it was 8.52 carats, half the size of a quarter. In its finished state, it totals 4.6 carats and is named Esperanza, Spanish for hope, after the founder's niece. Most importantly, Molina said, the diamond possesses the highest possible grades for color (D) and clarity (IF - Internally Flawless). More than 75,000 diamonds have been unearthed in the park - one of the world's only diamond-producing sites open to the public - since the first diamonds were first discovered there in 1906.
