Siamese Twin Diamonds

When one hears rough diamond, one immediately thinks of a beautiful perfect octahedron without a scratch or a breach. Truth is most are not, and this is not a bad thing otherwise I couldn’t show you this 8 carat marvel of nature.
This diamond will probably become a 3 carat color G and clarity SI1, once it will be polished into a pear shape. So its particularity does not lie in its quality, but in how it formed. If you look closely at the two last pictures (click on the picture to enlarge), you may notice that this diamond is actually two diamonds grown into each other. It reminds Siamese twins, don’t you think?
