The front frame is mostly constructed out of ammolite rock, more than 75 million years old and sourced from Canada.

The back plate is solid 24ct gold with the Apple logo encrusted with 12.5cts of I.F. - internally flawless - diamonds.

The 'home' button is also a single cut 8.5ct flawless diamond surrounded by 12 more diamonds.

The iPad 2 'Gold History Edition' was designed by Stuart Hughes. Only two units are to be made.
