Diamond Tree

This is the most magnificent tree I have ever seen. It is made with clear crystals and close to a thousand carats of diamonds. This diamond tree is literally worth a million bucks! Or 1.55 million bucks, to be more precise.

If you’re wondering why the tree hasn’t been stripped bare of its diamonds... it’s because they are all encrusted upon the huge star perched at the top so that it’s safely beyond reach.

Some statistics:
man hours — 12,966
weight — over 3,215 kilograms
lights — 456
crystal beads — 3,762
diamonds — 21,798
carats — 913
worth — $1,550,000
