Tennis ball-sized ‘diamond’ too big to sell

Toronto: Canada’s Lucara Diamond Corp will have to cut its tennis ball-sized rough diamond to find a buyer, following Sotheby’s failed auction for the world’s largest uncut stone. The 1,109-carat stone is named ‘Our Light’. Bidding for the 2.5 to 3 billion year old stone stalled at $61 million - short of the $70 million reserve. Reuters 

I had nothing when I started: George Lucas    

New York: Filmmaker George Lucas, 73, has slammed autograph-seekers who like to make money off his signature. He says they should look for another job as he also had “nothing” when he started. “You know why I have money and you don’t? Instead of spending time doing autographs, I spend my time making movies,” Lucas said. IANS
