Little is know about the Abadia do Dourados diamond which was found in the Minas Gerais, Brazil in the mid-1940’s.
This light brown diamond weighed around 104 carat.
Minas Gerais was formed mainly by colonists who searched for veins of gold (discovered 1693) and gems, and later diamonds which come from the naturally occurring itacolumite rock that can be found in great numbers in the region. These helped to boost occupation of the inner lands and led to the foundation of several new villages.
Current ownership or location is unknown.
