This 73mm long, 52mm wide and 27mm thick diamond has just been discovered in Botswana.
Perfect dimensions for making into a snuff bottle !!!

The only problem is finding a harder material to carve it...  Grin

Wow, that looks amazing. It has a proper size for a snuff bottle.

But I could guess it will be one of the world's treasures if makes into a snuff bottle.

Best Regards,

It is very easy to find the way to cut it. It is just matter of going to Antwerp, and ask anybody of Jews origin there. Isnít that true, dear Joey? 😊
Kind regards

Dear Giovanni,

    Not ALL Jews in Antwerpen know how to cut diamonds.
For example: in the Jewish Kindergartens, I'd bet you not one Jewish child knows how to cut diamonds.  Roll Eyes Shocked Grin
And Jewish doctors and lawyers won't know either, but will know how to buy diamonds.  Wink Grin
But there should definitely be many diamond cutters among the Ultra-Orthodox Jewish community.
Would diamond cut diamond?
Would a diamond-coated drill bit drill into a solid diamond?
I'm a Jew and I don't know.
Best,
Joey
