Russia unearths its largest colour diamond

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

The stunning gem aged from 120 to 230 million years was mined in Arctic Yakutia.

The precious discovery was made by workers of remote Ebelyakh mine on river Anabar in the extreme north of Yakutia, not far from shores of Laptev Sea and some 1,211km north-west from Yakutsk. 

The mine belongs to Diamonds of Anabar, part of ALROSA Group. 

The rough diamond is of deep amber colour, its dimensions are 47x24x22 mm.

The decision hasn’t yet been made as to whether it’ll be sent to Alrosa’s in-house cutting and polishing division, or sold rough.
