Argyle Pink Diamonds manager Josephine Johnson inspects the biggest 'red' diamond produced by mining giant Rio Tinto's Australian mine and which is up for sale, amid an 'explosion' in demand from Asia for the pink-hued stones, in Sydney on May 17, 2013. The Argyle Phoenix, a 1.56 carat round brillant gem, is one of three red diamonds on offer at the annual Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender -- the first time in the 30-year history of exclusive sales that it has included three red stones.
