Al­rosa Mined A Unique 34.17-Carat Yel­low Di­a­mond

Solitaire - - SPECTRUM -

Al­rosa’s af­fil­i­ate Al­mazy An­abara has ex­tracted a large 34.17-carat yel­low di­a­mond, the largest fancy coloured rough di­a­mond ex­tracted by the com­pany this year. The rough di­a­mond, ex­tracted from Ebelyakh al­lu­vial de­posit, mea­sures 20.17 х 19.65 х 15.1 mm.

It is a trans­par­ent in­tense yel­low crys­tal with a small in­clu­sion in the in­ter­me­di­ate zone. Be­fore the end of Oc­to­ber, it will be de­liv­ered to the United Sell­ing Or­ga­ni­za­tion Al­rosa (USO Al­rosa) in Moscow, where the com­pany spe­cial­ists will give it a more de­tailed and ac­cu­rate as­sess­ment.

“This year for Al­rosa has al­ready hit the record in the num­ber of large fancy coloured stones. We used to ex­tract fancy coloured rough di­a­monds over 10 carats once a year on av­er­age. This year, we have al­ready re­cov­ered sev­eral large fancy coloured di­a­monds, and this 34.17-carat yel­low stone is the largest one so far.

“The com­pany’s spe­cial­ists are still to study the stone more in de­tail, but we can say in ad­vance that it is fancy vivid yel­low, which is very rare and highly val­ued. The stone will be­come a wor­thy ad­di­tion to our col­lec­tion of large rare coloured di­a­monds that we are form­ing and will bring to the mar­ket,” said Evgeny Agureev, di­rec­tor of USO Al­rosa,.

Al­mazy An­abara is tra­di­tion­ally the leader in the num­ber of fancy coloured stones. Ear­lier this year, Al­mazy An­abara also ex­tracted a unique 27.85-carat pure pink di­a­mond, the largest pink stone in Al­rosa’s his­tory.
