555.55-carat black diamond lands in Dubai

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES (AP) – Auction house Sotheby’s Dubai has unveiled a diamond that’s literally from out of this world.

Sotheby’s calls the 555.55-carat black diamond – believed to have come from outer space – ‘The Enigma’. The rare gem was shown off on Monday to journalists as part of a tour in Dubai and Los Angeles before it is due to be auctioned off in February in London.

Sotheby’s expects the diamond to be sold for at least GBP5 million. The auction house plans to accept cryptocurrency as a possible payment as well.
