Pristine Black Diamond is a rare quest item and a mineral.
Currently, the primary demand for this item comes from players attempting to complete the achievement, which among other things requires a character turn in about 84 librams of , and for Shen'dralar reputation.
Several sources have noted that it may take 3-5 full clears of an instance (Scholomance, Stratholme, Dire Maul North/West) for each pristine black diamond obtained.
While the adventurer prefers to loot this item from a dead foe after a hours worth of killing, the entrepreneur might choose the time saver (although not a gold saver) and check the auction house.
