Petra Diamonds Limited announced Tuesday the recovery of a 507.55 carat white diamond at the Cullinan mine in South Africa.
The diamond was recovered last Thursday and is currently with experts for analysis. Initial examinations indicate that it is of exceptional colour and clarity, and most likely to be a Type II diamond.
Further details, including color grading and clarity, will be released once the diamond has undergone appropriate analysis.
The diamond was recovered alongside three otherwhite stones of similar color and clarity in the same production run: another very large stone of 168.00 carats and two other stones of 58.50 and 53.30 carats.
