Here's a rock that will weigh you down. The biggest gem-quality rough diamond discovered in the past 100 years is going up for auction.
The diamond was found in a Botswana mine last year. It's called "Lesedi la Rona," which means "our light" in the country's national language.
Sotheby's says the diamond is about the size of a tennis ball, weighing a whopping 1,109 carats.
