Cullinan Train Station
South Africa

Old train station in the very small, yet world famous mining town of Cullinan, where the Cullinan Diamond was discovered in 1905 by Frederick Wells in the Premier Diamond mine.

To this day the Cullinan Diamond is the largest rough gem-quality diamond ever found. The stone was named after Sir Thomas Cullinan, the owner of the diamond mine.

The uncut diamond was 3,106 carat (632 g) and was cut into 105 diamonds including the Cullinan I or the Great Star of Africa, 530.2 carats (106.04 g), and the Cullinan II or the Lesser Star of Africa, 317.4 carats (63.48 g), both of which are now part of the British Crown Jewels.
