This was found in a hotspot for random Diamond's, Can anyone look at the photos and tell me if it is possibly real. I bought a thermal tester and it lights it right up to red and makes a beeping sound. Also where would i take it to get an appraisal? Much Appreciated Screenshot_20201123-095625.png Screenshot_20201123-095645 (1).png Screenshot_20201123-095702.png

You can’t rely on any “diamond testers” unless it’s a Presidium. They test thermal transmission, anything off eBay or from Amazon with “coloured lights” is unreliable.
Still, the tests a gemologist would use would include specific gravity, LW and SW, spectroscopy and hardness.
the chances of finding a raw diamond crystal that size are less than being hit my a meteorite. Seriously.
if by some miracle it was actually diamond, despite its size it’s opaque. Diamond crystals need to be transparent AND free of inclusions to be facetted into commercial gemstones.
i Think it’s Quartz.

I'm no geologist but I thought all raw diamonds have a basic octahedron shape? This looks too round?

That's my thought too.
