In the city of Mirny, diamond capital of Russia, a cool flashmob was held and visited by 457 people. They assembled a really huge heart from diamonds.


“Russia Yakutia”.

Here you see five thousand 5 hundred carats (over 1 kg), the approximate cost of the exposition is 500 thousand dollars.



Another heart was shaped by those very visitors.




Mirny is the diamond capital of Russia. It was named after the kimperlite pipe “Mir” opened here. Today it is 525 meters deep and over 1200 meters wide.


The biggest diamond ever found in Russia was extracted here in December 23, 1980. Its weight was equal to 342,5 carats (over 68 grams), the diamond was named … “the XXVI Communist Party Congress”.
