Hello and welcome.

51cc = 51g

The specific gravity of diamond is 3.52

170.8/51 = 3.35

Using that as a guide:

You can get an idea of what you have.
Note that all this is for relatively pure stone. Depending of the kind of impurities in it, the test may not be much valid. If it is quite uniform and clear, then at 3.35 it is not diamond.

Another test is the hardness. If you can scratch Corundum with it, then it can very well be diamond.

Diamond conduct heat very well. You can bring it to a gemologist and he will be able to conduct a thermal resistivity test on it.
