Lucara: 472 Carat Diamond, 3rd Largest Ever Found at Karowe

Lucara Diamond Corp. has found a 472-carat, top light brown gem diamond, the third-largest diamond ever recovered from its 100% owned Karowe diamond mine located in Botswana.

CEO Eira Thomas said, “In 2018, mining at Karowe is focused in the high value south lobe, which consistently delivers large, high-quality diamonds in excess of 10.8 carats in size. The 472-carat is the third-largest diamond ever recovered from the mine and will be sold alongside other exceptional stones recovered since the beginning of the year as part of the first exceptional stone tender later in 2018.”
