Shortly after the news of diamond company Orra discovering a Lord Ganesh shaped 514-carat diamond in their African mine, there is news that another diamond company has made a rare discovery at their mine as well. Petra Diamond Ltd. says they have found a diamond the size of a chicken egg at South Africa’s Cullinan mine. The discovery at the mine northeast of Pretoria, South Africa, was made on Thursday. The exceptional 507.55-carat diamond weighs just over 100 grams and boasts exceptional color and clarity. In fact, the diamond may be among the world’s top 20 high-quality gems!
Another priceless discovery from the same mine that produced the largest diamond ever found, the Cullinan (3106 carats), is simply amazing. The value and price of this latest 507.55-carat discovery, however, is yet to be determined.
