The unique device is wrapped in the oldest form of Ammolite gemstone – which is more than 75 million years old.

British designer Stuart Hughes has also shaved splinters of a 65 million-year-old T-Rex Dinosaur bone into the Canadian rock to create a dazzling finish.

The back of the iPad is plated in 24 carat gold, weighing an immense 2,000g, while the Apple logo is adorned with 53 flawless diamonds totalling 12.5 carats.

A single cut 8.5 carat flawless diamond fits over the ‘home’ button and is surrounded with 12 outer flawless diamonds.

Father-of-two Stuart, 39, of Liverpool, said his iPad Gold History edition took months to create and was aimed at the ”super rich”.

”A magnificent combination of top of the industry technology and unique thought were involved in creating this piece of History,” he said.

Stuart creates elaborate bespoke designs for customers in London, Marbella and Monaco, which are favourites with top celebrities.

His cheaper models of iPhones and iPads have been snapped up by showbiz royalty including Stefano Gabbana, of Dolce and Gabbana.

Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld is also a regular customer of Stuart’s work.
