As we know, it is normal to find diamonds in Russia, but this time the find has become quite special, because the gem has a heart shape that for some is a sign of the love that nature has for us and wanted to express it on the eve of the day Valentine's day.

A Russian company dedicated to the extraction of diamonds, showed this February 13 a beautiful diamond with an abstract shape but very similar to that of a love heart.

"The diamond is currently in the United Sales Organization for detailed examination and evaluation," said the mining company.
Alrosa also showed the largest diamond they have in their possession, it is a yellow piece with about 34 carats. As far as is known, blue or pink diamonds tend to be the most expensive because of how rare and difficult it is to find them in nature.

Evgeny Agureev, who is a member of the board of directors and director of the United Sales Organization of Alrosa, said the following in a statement: “Diamonds in a distinctive way that resemble an object or symbol are extremely rare in nature. Most rough diamonds are shaped like an octahedron or don't have a particular shape. ”
"The appearance of a diamond in the shape of a heart, especially on the eve of Valentine's Day, seems to be a symbolic gift of nature not only for our company, but also for all loving couples," he added.
