One popular theory is that they have extraterrestrial origins. Scientists have suggested black diamonds were formed by a supernova that fell to Earth as a meteorite 3 billion years ago, then broke up over Brazil and Africa. The largest diamond in the world is a black diamond named Sergio, discovered in 1895 in Brazil. It weighs 3,167 carats.
