A “perfect” 100-carat diamond in a classic emerald-cut is going on the auction block where it could fetch between $19 million to $25 million.

Sotheby’s will offer the white diamond on April 21 in New York.

It’s an internally flawless D color stone, which Sotheby’s New York jewelry department head Gary Schuler likened “to a pool of icy water.”

“This 100.20-carat diamond is the definition of perfection. The color is whiter than white. It is free of any internal imperfections,” he said.

The stone is the only classic emerald-cut white diamond of the highest color and clarity and over 100 carats to come to auction, according to Sotheby’s. It was mined in southern Africa within the last 10 years and weighed over 200 carats before it was cut.
