Red diamond. Discovered in 1927 at the Lichtenburg diggings of South Af­rica, the 33-carat black bort rough sold for only $160. Originally thought to be just a piece of bort to be used as powder for polishing. The buyer, Mr. Houtakker, took the ad­vice of Sir Ernest Oppenheimer and sent the rough to Amsterdam for cut­ting. There, a flawless blood-red, emerald-cut stone of 5.05 carats was cut from the center of the rough. The Red diamond had many adventures and was first sold in 1947 for an un­known price. In 1968, it was re­ported to be owned by a private col­lector in New York.
