The Largest Diamond

This story is over a year old but I have not read it before. I am waiting for the next James Bond type movie to be about this.
The galaxy's largest diamond is 10 billion trillion trillion carat monster that has a cost that's literally astronomical!
"You would need a jeweler's loupe the size of the Sun to grade this diamond!" says astronomer Travis Metcalfe (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics), who leads a team of researchers that discovered the giant gem. "Bill Gates and Donald Trump together couldn't begin to afford it."
