|The “Blue Moon” diamond will make its first public appearance at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County in an exhibition from September 13 through January 6.
The 12 carat cushion-cut stone is rated “fancy vivid” with an “internally flawless” clarity from the Gemological Institute of America.
|The Blue Moon was cut from a 29.62-carat rough diamond unearthed at the Cullinan mine in South Africa in January. The mine is known for producing blue diamonds, but these gems still account for less than 0.1 percent of its total diamond output.|
