£15m frenzy as miners discover world's biggest diamond

It might not be as big as the Ritz, but they say it's the size of a coconut.
The world's biggest diamond, weighing an astonishing 6,000 carats or 42oz, has reportedly been discovered in a South African mine.
That would make it twice as big as the previous record holder for a rough, gem-quality diamond, the 3,106-carat Cullinan found in 1905 near Pretoria.
