$500,000 bag of diamonds
unclaimed property diamonds

This abandoned bag of loose diamonds is estimated to be worth $500,000.

Since 2007, the controller's office has attempted to contact property owners before the items are turned over to the state. It even established a locator unit that oversees mailings and other efforts to reach owners.
