1111 carat: The world’s second largest
A mine in Botswana has the world’s second-largest.
The 1111-carat stone was found in the Karowe mine, about 500 km north of the capital Gaborone.
It is said that it is the largest diamond in the country as far as now.
At the same time the stone is recorded as the largest diamond in the world over a period of over a hundred years. The 3106-carat Cullinan was found in 1905 in South Africa.
The diamond was divided into nine stones belonging to most British royal families.
Two more diamonds in the same mine
William Lamb, General Manager of Canadian company Lucara Diamond, announced that they had found two diamonds in the mine, 813 and 374 carats.
The world’s second-largest apple is not yet valued.
However, commodity and mining specialist Kieron Hodgson said there is no doubt that the price for the AFP agency would be too high.
In April a diamond of 100 carats was sold for 22.1 million dolars.
It has been announced that the process of cutting and polishing the diamonds in South Africa has been going on for more than a year.
The most diamonds in the world are being removed in Botswana.
