The world's largest colourless diamond to go on auction is unveiled by Christie's auctioneers in Geneva, Switzerland.

The largest ever diamond of its kind to come to auction has been sold in Geneva for £25.5m.

The left side of the necklace is made up of 18 emerald-cut diamonds and the right side composed of two rows of pear-shaped emeralds.

5.4 quake in southeast South Korea causes some minor damage
This would be the strongest quake in South Korea since the 5.8-magnitude one which occurred near Gyeongju in September 2016. According to the Korea Meteorological Administration, an aftershock of 5.4 was witnessed minutes later.

The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) found the stone was a D-colour, Type IIA diamond - a variety highly valued for its transparency and colour.

Christie's described the stone as "a timeless symbol of beauty" and said it hoped to rake in $6.0-9.0 million (5.1-7.7 million euros) for the diamond.

Diamond cleaver Ben Green analysed the gem for months and eventually started working on splitting the rough diamond in two in June a year ago.

The diamond was first taken from a 404-carat stone that was found in the African nation of Angola past year. Ten diamond-cutting specialists worked on the rough in NY after it was analysed in Antwerp. The finished piece of jewellery comprises white gold, diamond and emeralds and has been designed by Swiss jewellery maker de Grisogono. He also said that it also gave him a big headache as there was an vast pressure of "dressing" such an fantastic diamond and doing something out of the box, as reported by Sky News.

The stone can be detached from the necklace and attached to other jewellery.
