A 75 ct. D-color pear-shaped diamond—the most important white gem ever to be auctioned in the United States—is expected to rake in between $9–$12 million when it goes up for sale at Sotheby’s annual spring auction of Magnificent Jewels on April 17.

The stone is also one of the few pear-shaped diamonds of D color more than 50 carats to be auctioned in decades, the auction house says.
