My first thought would be “Who’s is it and where the eff did it come from?!” haha Diamonds don’t usually fall out of the sky. Tongue Out

wow that’s amazing.  Have you had any guests over lately that could have lost a stone?  I would go to a jeweler just to make sure it’s not real.  If it is, what a lucky find!

How strange is that.. I mean, how long have you been living there? What are the odds it was crammed somewhere that it never fell??? That is so weird. You have got to take it to get tested! For sure.. Keep us posted.

@ASH.:  I saw this in a movie in the 80s so it *must* be ligit – LOL. Draw it over a mirror you are not precious about if it cuts it, post it be me because it means that is it utterly useless. LOL 🙂

Looks like a CZ from that resolution, but it’s not a clear shot… and very exciting to think it could be a diamond! Can you take a clearer shot?

Also, get under the best light you can find and scrutinize the surface of that bad boy. Do you see any nicks or scratches? Especially check whether the facet junctions have any wear. Or does it look like it was cut yesterday?

What does the girdle look like…. smooth and waxy, or can you see little facets all along it?

Put it upside down on a paper with some text on it. Can you read any text through it?

The mirror test doesn’t mean it’s a diamond. Lots of stones are harder than a mirror. Bring it to a jeweler then tell us what it is!

It might belong to one of your friends. Has anyone come over and used your bathroom lately?

As for where it came from, do you have a daughter or a son who had female friends over in the last few months? Is there a vent over the area you found it?

Usually CZs fog up and stay foggy longer than a diamond. Take it into a cool room, breathe on it, and if it takes longer than a second or two to clear up, it is most likely a CZ.
