The largest diamond ever
excavated from the North American region was found in a Canadian mine beside the Arctic Circle, the media reported.
A yellow 544-carat diamond was discovered at the Divewick mine, located in the north of Canada, hundreds of miles south of the Arctic Circle, reports Hina.
“The size of this thing is completely unexpected in this part of the world and this is a true milestone for digging diamonds in North America,” the company said on the site mining.com.
The gemstone found is among the 30 largest diamonds in the world.
The egg-size diamond will not be sold in an unspoiled form, but from “Dominion” looking for a partner to cut and polish the diamond.
The company says it’s too early to talk about the value of the precious item found.
The world largest diamond is the 3,106-carat “Kulidan” found in 1905 in South Africa.
