Lucara Diamond recovered a 9.46-carat rare Type II blue diamond from its Karowe Mine in Botswana. The diamond, the first of its kind found at the mine, will be sold at Lucara’s upcoming November 26 tender.
“The recovery of such a rare stone is of great importance to the Karowe asset,” said Lucara president and CEO William Lamb. “We had previously identified a population of Type II diamonds at Karowe and the recovery of this rare blue diamond confirms the quality distribution of the diamonds being mined at Karowe.”
More than 57,000 diamonds are being offered at the upcoming sale, the fourth sale of Karowe diamonds to take place this year.
