Alrosa Mined A Unique 34.17-Carat Yellow Diamond
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.
