South Africans filed a petition demanding the world’s largest diamond


South Africans have filed a petition demanding the world’s largest diamond, worth $200 million, currently on Queen Elizabeth’s crown to return back.

The death of Princess Elizabeth II has saddened many in the world, but behind the grief of many, the people of South Africa have come to ask for the world’s largest diamond, which was originally found in their homeland, currently on the throne of Queen Elizabeth II to return to their homeland. 

According to CNN, more than 6,000 people have signed a petition calling for the precious diamond to be returned to South Africa. At the same time, people raised the demand to get this amazing diamond back after South African President Cyril Ramaphosa sent a message of condolences to all members of the royal family on Twitter.

The world’s largest reclaimed diamond, the Cullinan, known as “The Great Star of Africa”, was found in a private mine in In the old Transvaal province of South Africa in 1905. The gem weighs 530 carats and is worth about $ 400 million. According to the Royal Collection Trust, the Cullinan diamond was a gift from King Edward VII from South Africa in 1907 on the occasion of his 66th birthday.
