Only three pure, vivid pink diamonds of more than 10 carats have appeared for sale in almost 250 years of auction history, according to the Christie’s jeweler.

The “phenomenally rare” 25-karat pink diamond, measuring barely an inch and possibly cut during the 18th century, came from India’s Golconda mine that produced the Hope Diamond and Agra Diamond, among others, Warren said, adding that the gem could have been worn by a Mogul emperor as a turban ornament.
