|The biggest diamond to be discovered in more than a century has left Dubai to visit four more cities before being auctioned by Sotheby’s on June 29th. A discrete gathering was held at The Armani Hotel in Dubai, where Lesedi La Rona, or “The Lady", as it’s known to members of the company that discovered it, was on display.|
Its stop in Dubai was part of a global tour during which it has already visited Singapore and Hong Kong. It is due to visit four more cities before ending up at an auction at Sotheby’s.
Lucara Diamond Corp. sold an 813-carat diamond for $63 million last month, making it the most expensive rough gem on record and raising the prospects for the sale of the Lesedi la Rona.
