The Spoonmaker's Diamond is a 86 carats (17g) pear-shaped diamond. Considered the fourth largest diamond of its kind in the world.    According to one tale, a poor fisherman in Istanbul near Yenikapi was wandering idly, empty-handed, along the shore when he found a shiny stone among the litter, which he turned over and over, not knowing what it was.    After carrying it about in his pocket for a few days, he stopped by the jewelers' market, showing it to the first jeweler he encountered.
