Holy shiny stone! Keep Mister Freeze away!


507 carat diamond found in South America.  Have you ever wondered why all the huge diamonds come from South America?  It’s from all the dead Zombies!  I kid you not, why else would Cortes go down there?  It sure wasn’t the Fountain of Youth Aztec gold, it was to bring back an army of the undead.  Anyways I digress, check out this pic of the Rock.
