The second largest diamond ever found in Africa
The stone measures 65mm x 56mm x 40mm in size and is the largest ever to be recovered in Botswana.
The biggest diamond ever to be discovered is the 3,106-carat Cullinan diamond, which was found in South Africa in 1905.
"The significance of the recovery of a gem quality stone larger than 1,000 carats, the largest for more than a century and the continued recovery of high quality stones from the south lobe, cannot be overstated," said William Lamb, CEO Lucara Diamond. ■
