New Record-Breaking Diamond Discovered: 1,758 Carats

 

 

Lucara Diamond has unearthed a whopping 1,758 ct. diamond at its Karowe mine in Botswana, which is now considered the second largest piece of rough ever found.

The stone, described as bigger than a tennis ball, dwarfs even the Lesedi La Rona, the 1,109 ct. stunner Lucara found in 2015, which, until last week, held the title as the second-largest piece of rough ever discovered.

The only bigger recorded find is the 3,106 ct. Cullinan, which was discovered in South Africa in 1905.
