Why did it take so long for a Queensland diamond to be discovered?
Posted November 15, 2018 09:18:53Queensland’s largest diamond has been discovered, more than a century after the diamond was first discovered in the state.
The diamond, called Diamond jo, is the world’s largest gold diamond, and is a rarity in the world.
Diamond jo is a diamond with a large white gemstone.
Its name comes from the diamond that the first diamond was discovered in.
Diamonds are made from a mix of two minerals.
The first is gold, which is mined by miners in the goldfields of Australia and New Zealand.
Gold can be cut from diamonds, cut into pieces, and used to make jewellery.
Gold is mined in different places around the world, and most are found in the Goldfields.
Diamond jo is the first of its kind in Queensland.
Its discovery was reported by the Queensland Museum.
The Museum said the diamond had been “frozen” by an earthquake in 1884 and was in storage for several years.
“It’s a very special piece, and I’m very happy to have it back,” Museum curator Ian Riddle said.
“The Museum is very excited to have Diamond jo back.”
The diamond was found in 1899 by miners working in a gold mine.
“We were surprised to find a diamond of this size and colour and to find it in such a well-preserved condition, it was really exciting to see,” Mr Riddle explained.
“Diamond jo was discovered by miners at a gold mining operation in the 1840s in the Queensland Goldfields.”
The Museum found the diamond when it was excavating a hole in the ground, about 250 metres below ground.
It was a rare find for Queensland, with just over 200 diamond discoveries in its history.
“Queenslanders have an affinity for the history of gold and diamonds, which we’re fortunate to have in the Museum,” Mr Jiddle said, adding that the museum had been involved in researching the history and culture of gold mines and diamond miners for about a decade.
“There’s also a lot of history about the miners, which makes Diamond jo particularly interesting.”
