What is the most valuable object in the world, weight for weight? A deep purple diamond found in the Amazon basin. The only one known to exist, it is between 2 and 5 carats and is estimated to be worth 12 million Pounds, although others have refused to put a price on it.

There is some mystery about the diamond - its exact size, ownership and precise origins are unknown, although it is reported to have been cut in the Amazon region about 25 years ago.
