Sotheby’s, a 277-year-old British auction company, has sold “The Enigma,” a super rare black diamond with possible extraterrestrial origins, for $4.5 million in bitcoin.

The 555-carat diamond is 1 billion years old, according to estimates.

The diamond was just put on display in Dubai after being named the world’s largest cut diamond in the 2006 Guinness Book of World Records.

Its origins are unknown, however most experts assume it was formed by a meteoric collision or is the relic of a black diamond-bearing asteroid.

After the black diamond’s success in previous auctions, where an unidentified buyer paid $12.3 million in cryptocurrency for a rare 101.38-carat diamond, Sotheby’s is expected to allow cryptocurrency payments for the black diamond.

While Sotheby’s did not divulge the identity of the unknown buyer who paid $4.5 million for the ultra-rare black diamond, Hex ($HEX) founder Richart Heart claimed on social media that he was the buyer.

Heart said in a tweet that the diamond will now be known as the “HEX.com diamond” and praised the purchase as a success for the HEX community.

I won the world’s largest cut diamond for our #HEXican cultural heritage! It’ll be called the https://t.co/mLZsmWqXG0 diamond, it weighs 555.55 carats and has 55 facets. Congratulations to all you #HEXicans with #5555 club
