This is no false report, this 57,000 carat Emerald was found in Brazil and then sent to India to be cut.  The emerald is to be auctioned off in British Columbia, Canada on January 28th where it is expected to fetch a 1.15 million dollar price.

We are talking about an emerald the size of a turtle shell, and this is just something you don’t see everyday. Though you couldn’t make any wearable jewelry out of this thing, imagine owning the largest emerald in the world?  This would be one collector’s piece as rare as they come.

Who has a spare 1.15 million dollars?
