The $8 Million iPad 2 Has Gold, Diamonds and History.

#It has Gold, Diamonds, Oldest Rock in the world and.....Dinosaur's Bone!!!

London-based designer Stuart Hughes, known worldwide for his elaborate and expansive recreations of popular gadgets, has really outdone himself this time. The iPad 2 Gold History Edition has a back made of 24k gold (a total weight of 2,000 grams). The apple logo in the back is encrusted with 53 internally flawless diamonds totaling 12.5 carats. But there’s more.

Its main front frame is made out of the oldest rock in the world, Ammolite. Sourced from Canada this stone is more than 75 million years old, Hughes said. Making this even more special, the sections of a 65-million-year-old “T-REX” dinosaur’s thigh bone was splintered and then shaved into the Ammolite. All of this gives the frame the appearance of fiery marble in shades of red, green and brown.

Completing the bling factor, the frame is finished off with a single cut 8.5-carat flawless diamond inlaid in its own platinum surround with 12 outer flawless diamonds.
