“Matryoshka” discovered in Siberia, Russia is smaller in size and weight was measured to be just 0.62 carats (0.124 grams), with maximum dimensions of 4.8 x 4.9 x 2.8 millimeters. The inner diamond is even tinier — 0.02 carats (0.004 grams), measuring just 1.9 x 2.1 x 0.6 mm, according to Science alert.

Scientists working for Alrosa, which is a leading diamond-mining company, hypothesize that the internal diamond formed first and was then enclosed by the larger crystal later in the formation process.

 According to a Bloomberg report, the diamond is going to be sent to the Gemological Institute of America for further analysis.
