The latest ‘sparkler’ weighed in at 20.72 carats and is of gem quality. The previous diamond was 24.98 carats and was sold US$190,000.
We’ll find out how much the latest discovery fetches once the tender process is complete next month.
“I am highly encouraged by the recovery of yet another significant stone which is of a similar quality to a number of other larger stones that we have recovered recently,” said BlueRock chairman Mike Houston.
“I look forward to updating the market on the sale price following the completion of the October tender."
