A huge diamond weighing 1,098 carats has been found in Botswana. The discovery is Debswana’s most prominent finding in its fifty year’s operation time and has been dubbed as the third largest ever.
Interestingly, this diamond has surfaced after the discovery of the second largest diamond ever in the same country.
Debswana is a joint venture with involvement of the global diamond giant De Beers And the country government.
Although the cost estimation of the recently discovered has not been done, the second largest diamond was sold for $53m back in 2017.
