Five large gemstones were found in South Africa are like an orange 3 

5 large gem stones were discovered in South Africa and they weigh up to 507 carats.

A photograph dated 26 September 2009 shows a white diamond weighing 507.55 carats (101.5 grams) which was excavated at the historic Cullinan mine, some 50km east of Pretoria, South Africa, on 24 September 2009. Initial indications show that the diamond is of exceptional colour and clarity, which suggest extraordinary potential for its polished yield, and is among the 20 largest high quality rough diamonds ever found.
