Lucara Mines 1111 carat diamond, largest diamond mined in over 100 years!
Lucara Mines 1111 carat diamond, largest diamond mined in over 100 years!

Lucara, the Canadian diamond mining company, has found a 1,111 carat diamond which is really huge & an unprecedented find!

This is the biggest diamond mined in more than a 100 years & only the second biggest single diamond rough ever!

There is no way to even estimate the price that this diamond could fetch because not a single diamond of this size has been found in over a 100 years!

To put things into perspective, it has been estimated that the sale of this diamond alone can recover the cost of mine & all mining operations incurred by Lucara till date!

Earlier, in 2014, Petra Diamonds Ltd. sold a 122 carats blue diamond rough for $27.5 Million! & in 2010, Petra Diamonds Ltd. sold a 507-carat diamond to a Hong Kong-based retailer for US$35.3 million.
