The Mirny Diamond Mine is 525m deep and has a diameter of 1200m. It was the first, and one of the largest, diamond Pipes in the USSR. It is now abandoned. While it was still operational, it would take two hours for trucks to drive from the top to the bottom of the mine. ( Edited by wesm12)

This place is huge. It is one of the largest diamond mines in the world. Some of the worlds biggest diamonds come from Mirny. I would like to go there and accidntly stuff a diamond in my pocket. I know I would go to jail that is for sure.
