Lucara recovers 472-carat diamond

Lucara Diamond Corp. has recovered a 472-carat light brown stone at the Karowe mine. The largest stone uncovered at the site, the 1,109-carat Lesedi La Rona, was sold by Lucara last year for $53 million. A 373-carat chunk that broke off the Lesedi sold for $17.5 million.

In 2016, Lucara sold the most expensive rough gem on record, the 813-carat Constellation, for US$63 million.
