"Put this into perspective, this is a Cullinan diamond. The Cullinan diamond was 3,100 plus carats and it was the biggest and largest gem quality diamond ever found and ever has been found. If this diamond in fact exists and it's a six-thousand carat diamond, you can imagine A: how big it is and how priceless it would be if it is a gem-quality diamond. What I am intrigued about as a diamantier, is actually to go along and have look at the diamond, have look at the colour, have look at the purity and to hold something as unique as that, if it's true, in my hands."

"About that. (Picks up a glass ashtray to indicate size). That should give you a fairly good idea. It's sort of there (indicates with one hand over ashtray). The picture that I've got, it's sort of a light green colour and there's a cell phone by the side of it . I've got the picture here actually. It's sort of yeah, about that. (Holds up cell phone and ashtray)."

"Totally, absolutely, totally unbelievable. The Cape Times got the story, I don't know if you know that, yesterday, and apparently they phoned the Diamond Commission and an unnamed person in the Diamond Commission said 'highly unbelievable'. And I said to my friend it's not highly unbelievable, it's bloody impossible, you just don't expect this type of thing."

"I am a property developer and obviously it's nice to have a big stone that's worth a great deal of money. But it is not going to change our lives overnight. The thing needs to follow its due process and in terms of the current law, it must be reported to the relevant authorities, it must go to the mining commission and so on, so there's a whole process. And I think people are trying to maybe rush that process in terms of a few hours when in actual fact it's probably a few days if not a week, to get the whole thing done the way it should be done."

"It seems to be a perfect octahedral shape, the colour seems to have a greenish tinge which we do see in diamonds. They are a common thing which you do see. But just my gut feeling is the shape is too good to be true, it seems such a perfect shape. But without actually seeing the stone I can't really comment. I would love to see it, I'd love to see the real thing. If it is a real diamond it would be something really amazing."

Mystery surrounds reports on Tuesday of a diamond twice the size of the world's largest stone apparently unearthed by a small South African mining company, with industry experts saying the claim still needs to be verified.
Brett Jolly, property developer and shareholder of the unnamed mining company, said the stone of about 7,000 carats was found at their operation in the North-West province on Monday afternoon.
"Totally, absolutely, totally unbelievable," said Jolly, looking a bit shell-shocked.
Experts who talked to AP Television said it would be an incredible discovery if true.
