Diamond Launched into Space

The cushion cut diamond was launched into space on Thursday from a field in Derbyshire as part of a publicity stunt by London jeweller 77 Diamonds.

The diamond was mounted to a steel rod frame and attached to a helium balloon which rose above the earth for 150 minutes until it popped when it reached the edge of space. The jeweller said it travelled around 60 miles before it parachuted back to earth.

But no one has claimed to have found the gem yet, which is estimated to have landed within a five mile radius of the village of Lea in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire.
