Found in October 2010, the Spirit of Ekati remains the most significant diamond found in Canada. The 78 carat diamond from the Ekati mine in the Northwest Territories was sold in Antwerp for $6 Million on Valentine’s Day 2011.
The stone is internally flawless and is considered to be the mine’s most significant gem-quality find. It’s not the biggest stone to come out of the mine, that would be a 182 carat stone found a couple of year prior, but that stone was of poorer quality.
