Remember as a child being told never to stare directly at the Sun? Well, here’s the next best thing for the rebels amongst us that just wont listen to rules – The Cora Sun-Drop, now on public display in The Vault at London‘s Natural History Museum, generally a much safer alternative I think you’ll find. The world’s largest yellow pear-shape diamond, a stunning 110.3 carat marvel is at the Museum for a limited time, on loan from leading diamond manufacturer, Cora International. Startlingly large in size (roughly the same as that of a female thumb), blindingly beautiful, and famed for its rare yellow colour, the Cora Sun-Drop is truly unique. Boasting over 300 diamonds within its walls, The Vault currently holds some of natures most valuable and unique treasures –  combined with the added incentive of free entry to a museum housing a total of 70 million other exhibits within, the Natural History Museum predictably remains one of Britain’s most popular. Contrary to words from one of our British treasures, on this occasion, diamonds unfortunately are not forever, the Cora-Sun is only on display until August 2011.
