    That's Nermal. He's mine. I send him in via a tiny drone. It's how I acquire most of my gems.

    haha I was wondering what kind of cut it was! Maybe a single cut? Maybe he's a newbie PSer.

    lol, they were probably like "we can't eat that!"
    hopefully there is a consignment market in the colony.

    Ant: Hey, guys! Check out my new bling!

    Other ant: What’s the HCA on that?

    Other ant #2: Hate for you to have carried it all the way here without seeing an ASET first.

    Ant: I don’t care about all that. It was a STEAL!

    Other ant #3: I call dibs when you upgrade!

    Queen ant: It needs a halo.

    :lol-2:

    How many times has he done this before?
    And he is now just being caught!
    There must be a nest full of diamonds somewhere nearby!

    He is not a Pricescoper. A PS-er would be dragging a diamond and a GIA certificate.

    Just a guy in love who thought his girlfriend might like it...

    (True story: it happened in an Italian jewelry store. The jeweler filmed the ant, but at the end, took the diamond away. So cruel!)

    Some additional information about the real case: it was an average red ant. They can lift the weight up to 50 times higher than their own.

    In general, many animals are thieves, but usually they would steal products. (Maybe the ant took the diamond for a huge piece of sugar?). Recently in Plzen, Czech republic, a runaway kangaroo stole products from a grocery store.

    But the biggest offender? The bear.

    I feel sorry for the little guy, here he thought he had found something that his colony could live off of for a good amount of time only for it to be taken away!

    I hope when the jeweler took it he gave him the biggest piece of bread he could carry :D

    So if this was in an Italian jewelry store, then I hope it was good Italian bread with some ex-virgin olive oil for dipping........mmmmmmm!
